Business, Investing Book – The Silver Bomb

The Silver Bomb
By Michael MacDonald and Christopher Whitestone
Paperback: 184 pages
Publisher: CreateSpace
Published: April 2012
ISBN: 978-1475185270

The Silver Bomb 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 (money backed by nothing) 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.

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 currently happening to silver and to gold, and how to hedge the smart way.

Women’s Fitness – I Don’t Want To Look Like A Man

I Don’t Want To Look Like A Man
By SA Young
Paperback: 160 pages
Publisher: outskirts Press
Published: June 2011
ISBN: 9781432768423


I Don’t Want to Look Like a Man is a book written to address the attitudes that many women have towards fitness. Although this book was written with African American women as the subject matter, there are many concepts in this book that apply to women of all colors, in fact a lot of men could gain some benefit from this book as well. The author, Scott Young, who has been involved with sports, health, fitness and medicine for many years found a prevailing thought with quite a few women when he told them to include strength training into their fitness regimen and it’s the belief that pumping some iron will cause them to look like a body-builder. It is such a common belief that many women were quick to reply “I Don’t Want to Look Like a Man” even when the rationale for why in our current society we must strength train was provided to them.

The author also found other excuses and thought processes prevalent within the African American community such as “not wanting to sweat their hair out”, the reason why they are big is because they have big bones, real women have curves, “I’m a diva”, and “my man loves me big”. These excuses and other urban myths about health and wellness are explored.
