I really learned a lot reading Secret Weapon by Kevin Freeman, so when I heard of his new book I looked forward to getting a copy. I liked Secret Weapon but really wanted to know more of what to do once the third phase happened. Secret Weapon told us about the problem and now Game Plan tells us what to do in order to prepare. I like it because it’s not the standard “just go buy gold and everything will be fine” type of advice. Kevin Freeman covers a variety of scenarios and what to do to protect your family in case of economic collapse by different means. I gave it five stars because it's a breath of fresh air with so much doom and gloom you read nowadays.

Very insightful, a must read.  Kevin provides supportive facts regarding past and looming financial attacks and presents readers with key steps to consider to protect our families and country from a major financial attack and crisis.

In Secret Weapon, Kevin Freeman exposes the economic threats and financial attacks on our country. In Game Plan he lays out the steps you need to take as an American to protect yourself and your family. We have already seen things like security breaches at places like Target and Neiman Marcus. This could happen on a much larger scale and then what do you do? Freeman helps the reader prepare in case of a financial attack. Not only does he prepare the individual or family, he lays out 8 steps we as Americans as a whole can take to protect our country. Each step is a “step” in the right direction to avoid an economic collapse. If you want to be prepared, Game Plan is your book! -Kim Tipton

The US government's acknowledged debt is about $17 trillion. Analysts such as Boston University economics professor Laurence Kotlikiff place our government's true liabilities as closer to $211 trillion. A major transformation is coming and the sharks of the world are circling. We know this because hostile regimes and non-state actors have said so in their communications. The spirit of American independence and modern technology still holds out the potential to provide a return to free-markets and greater liberty, private entrepreneurship and personal responsibility than the world has ever known. Read Game Plan and choose your destiny. Kevin Freeman may be the Western world's foremost authority willing to speak publicly about Economic Warfare.

What a detail-specific follow-up the 2012 bestseller "Secret Weapon." In this brand-new (2014) book, Kevin D. Freeman tells readers what they can do NOW to protect themselves and their finances from a cyber-economic attack. Don't think that's going to happen... You haven't been seeing the news. An attack can be anything from hacked credit card info (ask Target about that) to something on a much-larger scale. This book cover things we can do to be prepared... How to invest... what to stay away from... Things that are specific and action-oriented so we aren't caught unaware. It's not a matter of IF the next cyber attack will happen, it's a matter of WHEN. The adage of an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure certainly applies to the specific advice the author details in "Game Plan." The minimal investment in purchasing this book today could help prevent a family financial catastrophe later on. This is the follow-up to "Secret Weapon" we've waited for, and it couldn't have been released at a better time. This is the playbook to preserve, protect, and grow your finances. Highly recommended.

You are going to want to share the sound advice Kevin Freeman presents in "Game Plan", but I doubt your book will be returned to you so buy more than 1 book! Although he lays out very real and frightening scenarios that threaten our finances and way of life (from terroristic threats to the dollar as well as EMP's destroying our power grids) you will feel informed and empowered to protect your family and finances. Relevant and accessible information for everyone.

Kevin’s work is very insightful and quite an eye-opener. Our economy can easily be hijacked. The vulnerability of the U.S. economy is well known in places like China, North Korea, Russia, the Middle East, and even Europe. Through his intricate analysis, the reader is quickly transported to the forefront of a new type of cyber or economic war—a war against every American citizen. This book serves as an invaluable resource, updated with the latest information on subjects of great importance to not only every banker on Wall Street and every legislator and public official, but to every citizen of our nation.

GAME PLAN: Author, Kevin D. Freeman Review by Somers H. White, CPAE, FIMC This book is written in a clear, easy and fast moving style; so I completed it in a day and a half.  It documents the very real threats to break down our financial system, cyber-attacks and other huge disasters. At this critical time it provides significant information, shows how to prepare for the unseen tactics of our real enemies; and profit in chaos. It reminded me of history in the 1930s, when Winston Churchill sounded the alarm against mounting evil and powerful enemies.  It is a MUST READ for those who want to be ahead of the curve.  ____________________________ Somers H.
