An unabridged reading of the new novel by James Goss featuring the Twelfth Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi in the hit BBCTV series Doctor Who. An asteroid in the furthest reaches of space - the most secure prison for the most dangerous of criminals. The governor is responsible for the cruellest murderers, so he’s not impressed by the arrival of the man they’re calling the most dangerous criminal in the quadrant. Or, as he prefers to be known, the Doctor.

I hope I get to hear more Dr Who stories narrated by Colin McFarlane. He did a great job with the different voices and held your attention.

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.

Would you listen to The Creature from Jekyll Island again? Why?

Yeah. G. Edward Griffin somehow found a way to make the history of the Federal Reserve interesting. I learned a lot. I am realizing I have so much more to learn about finance and econ, and I am grateful to an author who can keep me wanting to listen to anything about them. He does a great job making this important knowledge not only easy, but enjoyable to digest.

Any additional comments?

The book has almost a detective feel to it, as it tells the story of a crime that was and is committed against the American people. The story feel is the best part. And learning the concepts doesn't feel too much like learning, but more like hearing a crime story unfold. So serious thanks to this author for a very important book. If it would've been written with a little more character development just to draw you in more it would've been even better in my opinion.
