"This book was the best thing I have read in many years, I simply could not put it down. I found myself taking notes so often that you would have thought I was going to have to take a test on the material. The funny thing is, I think we are taking a test in America now. The longer it takes for us wake up and take action, the more difficult the next test is going to be. I gained a lot of knowledge from this book. The first half of the book could have been called “The history of banking” or “The financial history of the United Sates”. It made it easier to see how we got to this point. I hope many will take an interest in your ideas and prepare for the future. I’m sure those who do will share your book with those they care for. We need to be better informed so that we can choose the right leaders and recognize when we are being misled. We also need to be aware that WE are responsible for our family, not Uncle Sam. Many thanks to everyone who helped with this book."

Like in the iconic scene from The Wizard of Oz, the imposing curtain has been jerked back and all who dare to look inside can see the phony, manipulated charade that the financial system really is. The average person is beginning to see the handwriting on the wall in the form of current events like the Fed’s profuse money printing, euphemistically referred to as “Quantitative Easing,” and in Moody’s heretofore unheard of “de-rating” of the USA’s credit score. The financially-influenced mewling of the otherwise muted mainstream media is no longer able to pacify an increasingly awake audience, no matter how many times, for example, the myth of a bail-out boosted recovery is touted. The “official story” of the way things are supposed to work financially has all but lost its credibility.
The only thing that is consistently, not only holding its value, but also consistently delivering a positive return on investment is precious metal, particularly silver and gold. A paradigm shift is now underway in how people everywhere in the world view paper money, especially the ailing US Dollar. Several nations of the world are now favoring physical gold as a medium of exchange, notably for the sale and purchase of oil. Moves have begun to abandon the US Dollar as the world reserve currency and exchange rate standard against which the values of all currencies are fixed.
Banks have lost their position of trust and favor as they ask too much of the populace. The growing sentiment is that the banks seem to presume that the public, is obliged to come to their rescue, in between being there only to surrender their wealth as depositors and investors. The monolithic central bank is beginning to show signs of imminent fracture. Ice-breaking efforts by outspoken Legislators and vocal, populist constituencies inside the US include public calls for, at a minimum, a complete third-party audit of The Federal Reserve, the nation’s central banking system. Market downturns and banker bailouts, combined with soaring prices and a deluge of disconcerting financial news have eroded consumer confidence in the ability of the US Dollar to reliably function as a secure store of wealth.
This book is about the prominent role silver will play in the return to metal as money. This is not a book about some predictive financial philosophy, but rather a frank, no-excuses glimpse at the current state of things, and an honest, candid, look at logical outcomes. The prestidigitations of central banking, which have until recently been shielded from scrutiny by a cloak of pro-banking cultural bias, are laid bare within these pages. Intimidating and complex financial and historical connections, no matter how deep down the rabbit hole they first may seem to be, are plainly exposed by the application of good strong light and close inspection.
Formerly unquestioned fiat currency and fractional reserve banking policies and their inevitable and historical results are brought out in the open and revealed. The truth-is-stranger-than-fiction world of manipulation of the precious metals markets is opened up so that all may see inside. The focus of this book is not to persuade anyone that all of this has happened, or that it continues to happen. What is revealed here is that it is occurring in conjunction with other events of human history to create a never seen before event—the inevitable explosion of The Silver Bomb. And most importantly, practical actions and solutions are offered which will help the reader prepare for what is already upon the horizon, the end of paper money backed by nothing, and the return to metal as money.
The purpose of writing this book, on this vitally important subject, at this moment in time is to help wake people up to the imminent explosion of The Silver Bomb and what to do beyond the paper money crisis, and to help them understand how to navigate the rough economic seas ahead. It is the further aim of this book to show the reader how to invest in silver and gold, the most time-tested means of wealth preservation and appreciation.
The Dollar is nearing the end of its run as a world reserve fiat (meaning valuable only because it is stated to be valuable by legal decree, and not backed in value by anything tangible) currency, and fiat currencies are nearing their end as a whole. Silver and gold will resume their historical role as the backing for currencies and the standard of value. In these fiscally turbulent days, many investment direction-seekers are looking precisely for the information contained in this book to help them in their understanding of what happened to the dollar, what is happening to silver and to gold, and how to hedge the smart way...
"The Silver Bomb is a history lesson; not the type of dry and long-winded sermon wherein the authors flaunt their erudition, but rather an information-dense cannonball run through the most pertinent of need-to-know details. From the inception of money, through the creation of the Federal Reserve System, right up to the precipice of the economic abyss over which our leaders are hell-bent on driving us, The Silver Bomb is a crash-course in reality. Not the ‘reality’ so-called that is spoon-fed to a comfortably numb populace by our bought-and-paid-for mainstream media, but rather an accurate assessment of many of the imminent threats currently arrayed against a largely unsuspecting public. We are in trouble, is one over-arching message of The Silver Bomb. The Silver Bomb is absolutely need-to-know information. The time to prepare is almost at an end. Arm yourself with the knowledge contained in this book. Make haste, and may you make good speed."
