Publisher's Summary

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.

This book is about the most blatant scam of history. It's all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity. Your world view will definitely change. Putting it quite simply, this may be the most important book on world affairs you will ever read.

The 5th Edition includes a no-holds barred analysis of bank bailouts under the Bush and Obama Administrations that are shown to be nothing less than legalized plunder of the American people. Many other updates have been added, including a revision to the list of those who attended the historic meeting at Jekyll Island, where the Federal Reserve was created.

    "A disturbing look at reality"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book should be read by everyone, especially those with complacent socialist leanings. It is well documented, and forecasts a grim future unless there is a major change in our culture. It outlines very well how "1984" is coming to pass.

    "More than interesting"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Creature from Jekyll Island to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Creature from Jekyll Island?

    The trip into the future taken in the last chapter…
    And in earlier chapters learning that money not politics controls the world.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Bramhall – was your favorite?

    This is not a book of characters being performed, it's a nonfiction about global control


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

    It took me three days nonstop listening to complete this book


    Any additional comments?

    What draws us to the books we read? I have heard the Federal Reserve mentioned in other books, a paragraph here a chapter there. I only wanted to learn a little more about the federal reserve, but what I got instead was Morphious offering me the red or blue pill in the form of this fantastic book. If you choose the red pill and read this book, you will never see money the same way again.
    I was expecting a simple book about bankers meeting in secret on an island, and what I got was so much more. This book takes us back into history, brings us up to present date, and my favorite part, A trip into the future that we can all see has already begun just by reading today's newspaper headlines.
    I have to say that when I finished this book I no longer saw the world the same… I see it now as a much scarier place!

    "The Illusion of "MONEY""
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Creature from Jekyll Island to be better than the print version?

    I do not have time to read whole volumes anymore. As the owner of a manufacturing plant, I choose to listen to books in my car and at work instead.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ruskin/Rhodes and the formation of a world wide secret society for the purpose of total financial control of the world's finances.


    What about Mark Bramhall’s performance did you like?

    Smooth voice inflexion.


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

    I would love to, but 24 hours is a long time to listen in one sitting. You need time to digest, and even go back to listen and take notes as necessary.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should read this and absorb the significance of what is being put forward as the basis for this country's "wealth" and how the world might progress toward a "one world currency", irrespective of religious beliefs or suspicions.

    "Outstanding!"

    An amazing listen. Who needs TV/movies truth is far more fascinating. Long but worth the time. Cumbersome at times.

    Learn how the government and banks create free money by using the federal reserve bank to use for their own pier and control.

    I listed to one audio book a week on average. I like biographies, politics, sports, history, and anything related to comic books.

    "interesting, But Not Convincing"

    I would advise anyone buying this book not buy the audio version. Probably better to buy a paperback or kindle version.

    "Taking the red pill"

    Great book. Makes me question all I thought I knew. Will stay with me for a while.
    Having said that, the researched part of the book is far superior to the extrapolation at the end of what the future holds.

    "every American should read this book."

    This is the evidence that a change needs to happen. this book has been the eye opener for the investments I make which effect the central bank's. I can see the bigger picture of what they are accomplishing. This is what the top elite don't want you to know.

    I'm a trucker of nearly 25 years. Listening to the radio is a matter of habit for me, but hearing the same songs over and over and OVER again became old. Audio books help those miles roll by faster!

    "Scary"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A hard look at just to what extent money has shaped our country's history and influenced other countries. Very eye opening to see much of what has happened from the perspective of money and it's overall power.

    "One of my favorite books of all time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, to be informed, to be aware how the average person is being deceived and taken advantage of, to know the harm being done.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Creature from Jekyll Island?

    The level of deception required to create the Federal Reserve


    Which character – as performed by Mark Bramhall – was your favorite?

    Andrew Jackson for his stand against central banking


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The criminal schemes and people behind the scams that have changed the history of the world.


    Any additional comments?

    This book covers everything from the history of money and banking to how America was drawn into WWI and there is an underlying commonality to every story told. The cohesion behind the wide ranging topics covered are detailed accounts of powerful, influential people and groups with agendas and goals that must rely on deception, fraud and manipulation of the uninformed to accomplish their objectives. The schemes of the perpetrators are certainly not in the best interest of the uninformed they’re manipulating and why deception and fraud is required to reach their goals.
