The book is good to understand how the US economy has gotten into the shape it's in and what to do about it. There are good basics on banking and investing. As others have mentioned, parts read a bit like a marketing brochure for Schiff's Investing Company, but I don't think it's such a problem in this case. He gives equal advise to persons seeking equal services from other companies. To the detractors I'd say that taking some of the recommended actions could still put one in some stable defensive positive value investments whether the authors negative view on the US economy materializes or not. I read this at the peak of passing the 700$B banking bailout bill (09/2008), and realize that Schiff was predicting such a colapse as he wrote the book 2 years ago (2006). The author's cause is significant, but commenting as a book only, I find it informative and well written, and in audible's case, well read.

The first 3/4 of this book are a good explanation of why the US economy is in such bad shape and why it won't fully recover any time soon. The remaining part is just a commercial for the products and services offered by the author's company.
I can save you six hours - here's his basic advice: buy gold, put any remaining capital in foreign currency, and don't buy what you can't afford to pay cash for.
