Publisher's Summary

There are factors that produce immense profits and these occur rarely. Investors stand at a unique point in monetary history where the death of paper currencies on a global scale is taking place before their eyes. Because most are frozen into inside-the-box thinking, few investors will ride the next move as silver (and gold) skyrocket in the years ahead. In fact the primary purpose of this book is to educate the listener as to why there is no way out of the financial morass created by the financial elite. We have reached the point where the savvy few understand what is happening and take action, while the rest are left watching, thinking the precious metals bull market is dead. The authors explore when to expect the next bull market to begin and why, how the 2008 financial crisis has been "papered over" and what to watch for going forward. The real supply and demand looking at both industrial and monetary demand. Money and banking - what fractional reserve banking means to currency and bullion. The best surest method to stay in the profit zone and not worry about the wild price swings. How to pick a mining company - this information is priceless. Most who are taught this methodology have a degree in finance, but we break it down for the average investor. The silver manipulation story - the facts, more facts, and the irrefutable facts. The biggest concern of all investors: The debt bomb!

History of Silver, Money & Austrian School of Econ

Where does The Silver Manifesto rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of the top 5 books I have read all year. The book covers the history of silver's use as money both in antiquity and in modern times. Silver's supply and demand is also covered. The book talks about the Austrian theory of the business cycle. If you have a normal background (Keynesian) in business or economics from a prestigious business school you should keep an open mind and listen to this book for a different perspective and to challenge your beliefs about banking, money and how the economy is supposed to function. You may not have heard of some of the terms before or the Austrian School of Economics, but the Austrian School predicted the 1929 stock market crash, the 1970s stagflation, the Dot.com bust and the 2008 housing bubble.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The book is non fiction and besides an extensive history of silver and commodity money, the book talks extensively about the Austrian School of Economics, its theories and the viewpoint of what's going on now in the economy from an Austrian perspective.

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

No, but the reader is reading very clearly.

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

The book talks about the misconceptions in academia and the mainstream media and mainstream financial media of deflation. Deflation is NOT evil! I also enjoyed all of the history of money and banking discussed in this book. Many modern financial books neglect going back through the perspective of history to see how now history may not exactly repeat but how it may rhyme now or going forward.

Any additional comments?

This book correctly shows silver's key role throughout history in money and banking systems of many different governments and the long term consequences of governments going onto fiat money and using central banking and fractional reserve banking. If you want to learn about the Austrian School of Economics, the history of money, the supply/demand fundamentals of silver because you own physical silver or precious metal mining stocks or thinking about buying these for insurance or wealth preservation or for investment purposes, you find this book quite enjoyable. Lots of useful information.

At least I finished the whole Book.

Narrator Ryan Brooks: needs practice telling a story vs reading a story. Good Voice
The Subject matter not that memorable.
Im still Silver bullish though. Keep Stacking.

Good book but narrator is horrible.

The writing of this book is excellent and the content appears to be well researched, properly cited and clearly supported by documented evidence. I have read several books on this subject recently and The Silver Manifesto tracks well with other authoratative material while delving much deeper into the subjects of royalty companies, mining companies and actual detailed analyses of individual mines re: their output, future forecasts and management.

Conversely, the narrator was terrible in all aspects except one; the sound of his voice was pleasant. Otherwise his narration was a grueling, frustrating struggle to remain immersed in the content and continuity of the narrative . The narrator mispronounced an unbelievable number of words, constantly pulling my mind away from the authors narrative in order to understand what the narrator was saying, translating it back into the intent of what the author meant to say and then reinserting it back into the book with properly contextualized meaning. Though this process was lighting fast it was still distracting and caused me to miss a small amount of what followed and constantly pulled me from the flow of the author's writing.

The narrator also had a great deal of difficulty with punctuation; inserting commas where they didn't belong, ignoring commas carefully crafted by the author, inserting periods in random places, and reading right through some of the periods that were intentionally there. The phrasing was also jolting at times with sentence subjects seemingly thrown in as afterthoughts and other sentences lacking pauses or emphasis that would have asded meaning to the writing.

Overall, I give this book an A for content but an F for listening pleasure.

Like listening to a robot

The information could have been understood better if the narrator didn’t sound like a robot.

Good but not great

Not really worth the time and effort, except for the serious silver stacker. A lot of marginal stuff that is not directly relevant.

Very Technical but easy listening

Any additional comments?

Easy to listen to, very technical at times but all very good information especially about the industrial demand of Silver, I have learned something new today which is always my goal when listening to non fiction

Performance was a let down

The content was ok - there was surprisingly little information about silver given the title. The performance was weak. Pronunciation of several words was off (heirs, indices, to name a couple) and he read some lines twice which became annoying.

Overall there is some good information if you are willing to sift through the useless stuff & bad narration.
