I thoroughly enjoyed this book - mainly because this is written by a former banker who knows the banking system, has seen what the everyday person does not see in banking and gives practical tips and insights in the monetary system and advice on how to weather the financial storm and keep you financially independent from a basically corrupt banking system.

This is good book to read by everyone, whether you are a christian or not. I think if you read this book now and re-read it again in a few years time you would not be laughing at it if your on the sceptical side.

Key good advice highlighted - get out of debt, always have liquid assets, different types of liquid assets and general preparation for disaster. Keeping emergency food, which is a very good idea and some may have read this and laughed but with so much going on in the world the key is be prepared for emergencies, economic or otherwise, which is always sound advice - highly recommended read and I encourage others to read with an open mind and take the good salient points out of it.

Gave it four stars only because in some parts the writing style can be a little incoherent almost as if the writer has written faster than his thought process and as such some parts of the book is a little repetitive.

This book is a real eye opener as to what is really going on behind the headlines. It will surprise, shock and hopefully help the reader to make inforamative decisions. Not for the faint hearted!

THIS BOOK EXSPOSES FED.RESERVE,OUR GOVN'T,BANKS AND ETC. IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN THIS BOOK IS REVEALED IN THE BIBLE. SOME FOLKS MIGHT THINK THIS BOOK IS A JOKE BUT THEY ALSO THOUGHT NOAH WAS A JOKE ABOUT THE FLOOD. DO THE INVESTIGATION YOURSELF?

The first few chapters gives the reader the background from which Dr Bates has worked, and explains that our world is influenced by certains groups of people who not only have the power, but are using that power over our world for their own gains, and how that will plight anyone who is not relying on the state for funding their lifestyle, or the super rich. In other words, the average Joe that is making an honest living, is law abiding and is paying his taxes.

Dr Bates progresses to explain and gradually go into greater explanation how by way of war (at the expense of the average Joe), and social unrest brings about equality - making the masses equally poor bar the "elite" that are in charge.

Towards the end of the book, some methods of self rescue are listed, such as allocating our finances to protect against hyper-inflation by having precious metals and letting go of "paper money"; he also advises the apocalyptic/survivalist styled stocking up on food and medication.

My reasons for giving the book a two-star is because it gives no advice to late comers to the "End Times", or those who are living hand to mouth and will likely be hit the hardest. For these people, the free-phone number to buy more of his products in my opinion does not at all alleviate the frustration of living helplessly in a volatile world, if his predictions are true.

For a book that seem to have been written for "Christians", I expected to see a greater emphasis on the authority of God, His permissive will, and even though there is obligation to manage resources wisely until His return, his people should rely on his providence. Quotations from the Bible are frequent enough for the reader to make an association, but they just did not make the impact for me.

It is just timely and so seasonal. It is a must have for anyone who desires an escape for the next economic/financial chaos

A real eye opener, giving insight into and making sense of the recent / current economic situation. I couldn't put it down - a must read for everyone!
