    Highly Recommend !

    I have been a Goldseek Radio listener for years. I have found Chris to be one who delivers clear insight and knowlege on todays markets. I owe Chris and Bob Chapman many thanks for helping me to invest in gold and silver back when gold was at $400 oz., and silver was at around $7 oz.. I continue to be a buyer even today.

    I just don't have enough good things to say about the book. It details how our economy got to where we are today, and what we need to do to perserve our wealth in the near future. If your tired of getting your investment advise from the mainstream media. Let Chris and Wealth Building Strategies guide you through the day to day investment jungle with clearly written, easy to understand, no non-sense presision that any reader can comprehend. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
