    This classic expose of the Fed has become one of the best-selling books in its category of all time. Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magician's secrets are unveiled. Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes. It reads like a detective story - which it really is, but it's all true.

    What made the experience of listening to The Creature from Jekyll Island the most enjoyable?

    The Factual support for the incredible statements made in this book, made this book one of the most memorable I have ever read. Each and every incredible assertion and fact is footnoted with the source of the fact. It will open your mind to what real history has happened in the U.S.No one, who thinks he knows American history and the economy, truly knows it without reading this very important book.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Bramhall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reading performance is very good and makes the material easier to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The degree of uncovered knowledge from this book is life altering.


    Any additional comments?

    Every voting American SHOULD be made to read this book. After reading this book, one can truly say truth is stranger than fiction. You'll listen to it more than once.

    It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

    If you could sum up The Amateur in three words, what would they be?

    Essential informative reading.
    This book addresses facts and issues that have remained buried for too long. Regardless of how one votes, one should have the facts, unvarnished and uncensored before voting. I wish all voters could read this.


    What other book might you compare The Amateur to and why?

    Dreams from my father-so the reader could compare the facts with an autobiography.


    What about John McLain’s performance did you like?

    Excellent reading that entertains the listener with what sounds like a detailed documentary.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The book leaves one concerned for our journalistic system that seems to have evolved to complete ineffectiveness.
