Publisher's Summary

This classic expose of the Fed has become one of the best-selling books in its category of all time. Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magician's secrets are unveiled. Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes. It reads like a detective story - which it really is, but it's all true.
This book is about the most blatant scam of history. It's all here: the cause of wars, boom-bust cycles, inflation, depression, prosperity. Your world view will definitely change. Putting it quite simply, this may be the most important book on world affairs you will ever read.
The 5th Edition includes a no-holds barred analysis of bank bailouts under the Bush and Obama Administrations that are shown to be nothing less than legalized plunder of the American people. Many other updates have been added, including a revision to the list of those who attended the historic meeting at Jekyll Island, where the Federal Reserve was created.

Riveting novel. Oh and it's economic history.

Would you listen to The Creature from Jekyll Island again? Why?

Yeah. G. Edward Griffin somehow found a way to make the history of the Federal Reserve interesting. I learned a lot. I am realizing I have so much more to learn about finance and econ, and I am grateful to an author who can keep me wanting to listen to anything about them. He does a great job making this important knowledge not only easy, but enjoyable to digest.

Any additional comments?

The book has almost a detective feel to it, as it tells the story of a crime that was and is committed against the American people. The story feel is the best part. And learning the concepts doesn't feel too much like learning, but more like hearing a crime story unfold. So serious thanks to this author for a very important book. If it would've been written with a little more character development just to draw you in more it would've been even better in my opinion.

Hands down most compelling listen of 2017 !

The depth of detail in this work is fantastic , but yet it never seemed hard to keep on listening .
It reads like a crime novel, with fascinating plot twists and turns , but the unfortunate thing is that this is all factual and happening to us all this very second .
Don't be put off by the size of this bookt is one that you will never forget ..

A Great Work.

If you could sum up The Creature from Jekyll Island in three words, what would they be?

Great,
Comprehensive,
Epitome.

What other book might you compare The Creature from Jekyll Island to, and why?

I have delved into many books regarding the nature of the works entailed in The Creature from Jekyll Island. Truly, this book stands on its own in the public realm. If you've read/listened (and without a doubt, enjoyed) this book, and seek to understand more, may I recommend Jim Rickards works.

What about Mark Bramhall’s performance did you like?

His performance was stellar. A great orator who's speech truly conveys and illustrates the language of the book. Eloquent, mannered, consistent and pleasant to listen to. A great narrator for a great work.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. Aside from the joy of knowledge and understanding, the later chapters shall strike a chord in all hearts whom hear it.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this work to anyone who wishes to understand the economic strings we find ourselves tangled in from birth. Whom pulls them, and how these strings are swayed from beyond our sight.
The author has done a tremendous and incredulous study into the history of money, which is, of course, the history of mankind and our societal and economic structuring.
For those seeking to further their education on finance, politics and true world history; this is indeed a work that should not be forgone.

Fascinating from beginning till end.

This audiobook was thoroughly enjoyed, it was a particularly interesting perspective on a tragically under appreciated issue.
