Description

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.

This is the book that connects the dots.

Excellent in every aspect. Conspiracy...absolutely not, just facts that prove the alleged conspiracy is real. Must read or listen.

An incredible, true “whodunnit” read

Reading this is like taking the “red pill” from The Matrix. I recommend it for people who wish to be woke, or more woke, and want to take advantage of the powerful lessons it provides.

You’ll never look at money the same way again, because you’ll know the TRUTH about the Fed, how banks really work (not at all what we’re led to believe) and you’ll know how we came to the currency failure we’re in now.

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.

Prepare to be amazed

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

Eyeopening, shocking, disquieting

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Creature from Jekyll Island?

The explanation of how banking and the economy actually work.

What does Mark Bramhall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mark's narration brought the concepts and information presented into clear focus.

Any additional comments?

This book has been on a shelf in my home for over 10 years and during that time I manged to read maybe the first 3 chapters. I'm so glad I found it on Audible and that it has been updated with information about the world's current economic situation. I've learned more about banking and the economy from this book than I did from my college economics and finance classes. Well worth the investment.

Do you really know what your Politians are doing?

Any additional comments?

If you want to get an idea where this country is headed, you've got to listen to this. So many puzzle pieces about the political big hitters and policies just fall right into place.. This is not aimed at a particular political party.

I'm only half way through, and am planning a 2nd listen so I can understand more of the intricacies of the monetary world.

Please inform yourself in the name of humanity.

Agenda Driven and Dangerously Misleading

I had to stop listening to this book because the description of how banks work was so fundamentally misleading and inaccurate I couldn't take it anymore. The description of the origins of central banks were wholly inaccurate as well. I was so amazed at how poorly this book captured reality that I went to research the author. He is a conspiracy theorist that believes you can cure cancer by eating apricots and bitter almonds, so that explains that.

If you want to learn about the origin of central banks (across the world) as well as a better idea how banks work I would suggest this free course from Coursera: https://www.coursera.org/learn/money-banking

I've worked in and around banks for many years and yes bankers do some very bad things at times. However, this should not mean you completely ignore the conveniences that the modern banking system and central banks in particular have provided to society. There's a very valid debate to be had about wealth distribution and central bank policies, but a balanced view is not found in this book. To the author's credit I will say that the writing is good and the story line is fascinating even if the technical material about banking is very misleading.

Unbelievable revelations

What made the experience of listening to The Creature from Jekyll Island the most enjoyable?

The Factual support for the incredible statements made in this book, made this book one of the most memorable I have ever read. Each and every incredible assertion and fact is footnoted with the source of the fact. It will open your mind to what real history has happened in the U.S.No one, who thinks he knows American history and the economy, truly knows it without reading this very important book.

Have you listened to any of Mark Bramhall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The reading performance is very good and makes the material easier to listen to.

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

The degree of uncovered knowledge from this book is life altering.

Any additional comments?

Every voting American SHOULD be made to read this book. After reading this book, one can truly say truth is stranger than fiction. You'll listen to it more than once.

Absolutely Brilliant! How the powerful enslave

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

Revealing, Sickening, Empowering

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I especially appreciated the authors perspective with regard to the political and economic forces leading up to the civil war, as well as sheding light on the powers and more base motives facing Lincoln as the war wore on. this book brings a great deal of insight to many of the events that have shaped our county. He brings to light how the many facets and influences of monetary control have worked against America since its inception. For the history buff's... I guarantee at least 2 to 3 Ah ha moments. This book really stitched together key historic events of the last two hundred years with each cause and effect. Demonstrating time and again the destructive and enslaving paterns used by powerful monetary forces to literally control the "Free" people of the world

Any additional comments?

The Narration was excellent. I often felt as though I was traveling by train through history, being enlightened as my traveling companion Mr. Griffin explained to my understanding, in some cases for the first time the passing historical landscape.

Despite the size of the book... I didn't want it to end.

Trembling Truth about the Cartel Federal Reserve!

Could not "put this book down" and was riveted from start to finish. Sobering and astutely academically composed leaving no stone unturned. A call to arms to the now paltry American middle class against economic slavery of the masses- domestic and abroad-by an elite percent behind the 1%. Get your personal house in order and understand that most of your wealth woes were carefully orchestrated over decades by the Federal Reserve bankers and anti-free marketplace politicians. We are in hot water and being gradually boiled like frogs. Its not too late to jump out. It's not easy, but Griffin points the way!

A book that makes you think, although I’m not sure the way the author intended.

While the book starts off strong after a few chapters things begin to go off the rails. Events that support the authors claims are examined in excruciating detail while those that oppose it are quickly disregarded or hand-waved away.

The author has a tenuous, at best, grasp of history that he uses to spin a compelling but flawed narrative. While the book provides a good starting point I suggest all readers approach it with skepticism and do their own research into its claims.
