Gold: The Once and Future of Money

Gold is an important book. It has much to offer. It is well-written and easy to read. Its only flaw might be the author’s optimism. One doubts that a return to a gold standard – as desirable as it may be – is as inevitable as set forth in the book.

The Mining Valuation Handbook: Mining and Energy Valuation for Investors...

Make no mistake. This is a reference book. It’s the type of book that is probably required reading for graduate students at the Colorado School of Mines. In other words, this is not a book that one reads for entertainment. This is a book that one reads solely for the purpose of education. Which means only those closely associated with the mining industry would ever pick it up in the first place.

Investing In Gold: The Essential Safe Haven Investment for Every Portfolio

The Theory of Money and Credit

Many knowledgeable individuals believe this is the best book ever written on money and credit. And they are probably right, for it has no peer, especially as concerns the Austrian school of economics. The book does, though, have two minor flaws, both of which concern readability.

The Case for Gold Book Review

The Case for Gold is a tremendous book. Ron Paul’s case is so cohesive and so powerful that it is impossible to refute. Unfortunately, because the book is a combination of history and economics, most people will eschew it. Which is a shame.
