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.

Enlightning

I think every one needs to know about this story. It was the structured answer of many my questions that I had about money creation and banking/government relationship.

loved this, but the truth can hurt

very cool read, but leaves you in a quandary about where we would be as a society without the fed.

An amazing argument!

An amazing comprehensive argument for the elimination of the federal reserve. Anyone interested in freedom should immediately educate themselves on the enemy.

Slow, Dry, Boring, and all over the place

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The author revisits the same events over to the point of exhaustion, I've read and heard the Jekyll Island story a few different times but this was a fantastic effort to kill the story, almost as if the perpetrators came back to life as the author & narrator and didn't want people to be able to endure the boredom to learn of their betrayal

What other book might you compare The Creature from Jekyll Island to and why?

A trigonometry text book

How could the performance have been better?

More emotion and perhaps a little suspense on parts supposed to be exciting instead of the same monotone torcher

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The only disappointing audible book I've experienced thus far and hope I never have an experience like this one again

Any additional comments?

would love to exchange this for another, even a much cheaper book but seems impossible to do or not as easy as advertised

Everyone should know!

The first of this book is history and therefore gets bogged down a little because of the facts that are necessary to some but not others (the reason for only 4 stars on story). I do not fault him for the details....it was just a little over my economic intellect sometimes. The reader was good enough to pull me through the doldrums. But stay with it. Wait for it. The last 3 and a half hours is pure genius that I was not expecting! Griffin succinctly and factually frames the thoughts about the Federal Reserve that I have been accumulating for years. Then he gives reasons and details that support my same theory that there is a collapse coming. He even offers solutions that COULD work and which would turn our economic death into just a hangover. BUT....(Because we have dishonest men running the country, and because the "electorate is unaware of what's being done to them and therefore unable to do anything about it"..... I believe it's never going to happen! Of course he chides me for this apathy....but I likewise chide him for his surrealism. Should be required reading for every economic student....and you, too! I rarely take the time to rate books....and when I do I rarely am this excited about giving such high marks. This is an A+ Be getting ready for the collapse!

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!

Decent but drawn out and unconclusive

I liked this book and enjoyed it generally speaking but it honestly could be quite condensed, I think someone (not the author...) should make an abridged version. Very abridged. Also I thought there were not any real solutions or alternatives to the federal reserve given, and the one that was is ridiculous and poorly described/defined (using gold as money). Many of events and concepts were a bit outlandish as well. Has some interesting information though and the audiobook makes the great length of the book more tolerable. Good narration.

Redundant propaganda

The message starts out well enough with a history lesson on the Bankng industry. The author then repeats himself over and over and over, seemingly to brainwash the listener into believing his massive conspiracy theory propaganda.

Long waste of time unless you buy into the sky is falling rhetoric. Having said that, there are SOME historical facts mixed in to make it seem authentic.

This book could have been very useful.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book could have been very useful - opinions and facts are too closely blurred. The author's own opinions weave in and out of every part of the book, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone looking to gain an unbiased opinion of the Fed.
