    A Must Read In Today's Economy

    As this book has been recommended by the likes of Marc Faber, John Mauldin, and Lew Rockwell, I'm not sure how much my review will add. Still, a friend of a friend of a friend of Jim Gibbons, the person who put the book together, has said he is looking for reviews of his book. I decided to oblige, although this is my first formal review of any book. The book seems well put together and informative. It also has several other strengths.

    First, as it is a collection of two dozen essays, it presents a variety of ways to invest in gold. My knowledge about the practical aspects of gold investing was limited and the various essays filled in many gaps for me. Although Gibbons' point of view is that the primary reason to hold gold is as a form of wealth insurance, the investment aspects of owning gold also receives wide play from the various contributors. Despite gold being at record prices, I guess it's not surprising that virtually all the contributors think the price of gold is going much, much higher.

    Additionally, Gibbons also asks the reader to believe that the contributors he has gathered together are much more trustworthy than your average Wall Street brokers or financial planners. He does a good job of conveying to the reader why we this might be so. If one can believe Gibbons, the referrals alone are worth the price of the book. The list of referrals includes stock brokers, coin and bullion dealers, and investment newsletter publishers among others. A few names I recognized, but the majority were new to me.

    Again, I am no expert on gold, but the combined effect of the essays makes the book feel more like a primer on gold investing than it does a detailed analysis. Although a few of the contributors go in to great detail about certain aspects of gold investing, it is readily apparent that each one of them could have written their own book on investing. Some of them have. This is both a strength and a weakness of the book depending on what you hope to get from it.

    If there is one true weakness in the book, it is that a couple of the essays already seem a bit dated. It's for this reason that I only gave the book a 4 star rating, although if just one of the contributors I plan on contacting pans out, it would be 5 stars.
