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.

  • 5 out of 5 stars
  • Riveting novel. Oh and it's economic history.

If you could sum up The Creature from Jekyll Island in three words, what would they be?

Revealing, Sickening, Empowering

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I especially appreciated the authors perspective with regard to the political and economic forces leading up to the civil war, as well as sheding light on the powers and more base motives facing Lincoln as the war wore on. this book brings a great deal of insight to many of the events that have shaped our county. He brings to light how the many facets and influences of monetary control have worked against America since its inception. For the history buff's... I guarantee at least 2 to 3 Ah ha moments. This book really stitched together key historic events of the last two hundred years with each cause and effect. Demonstrating time and again the destructive and enslaving paterns used by powerful monetary forces to literally control the "Free" people of the world

Any additional comments?

The Narration was excellent. I often felt as though I was traveling by train through history, being enlightened as my traveling companion Mr. Griffin explained to my understanding, in some cases for the first time the passing historical landscape.

Despite the size of the book... I didn't want it to end.
