 Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magicians' secrets are unveiled. We get a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, their pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A dry and boring subject? Just wait!

You'll be hooked in five minutes. Reads like a detective story - which it really is. But it's all true. This book is about the most blatant scam of all history. It's all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity.

Creature from Jekyll Island is a "must read." Your world view will definitely change. You'll never trust a politician again - or a banker.

Amazing, amazing book. I learned so much about money and it helped shape the way I view the world. I even gave a speech in my speech club based on the content of this book. Can not recommend highly enough. Read full review

Review: The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve

User Review  - Brian Bennett - Goodreads

Greatly detailed, sometimes bordering on tin-foil hat worrying. Occasionally dry and constantly self-important, the book still managed to impart some knowledge; there was a lot of details about The Fed and IMF that I didn't know. Read full review
