This is one of the most complete works I’ve ever read. G. Edward Griffin takes a very difficult concept and conveys it simply and accurately. The Federal Reserve Bank is arguably the most influential institution in the United States. Understanding the history of this institution is vital for grounding your relationship with the US government in reality.
The Creature from Jekyll Island is also more than a history book. It reveals the intrinsically worthless nature of fiat currency, which can be difficult to accept psychologically because of the deep web of social deception that has been spun since the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944.

As is often the case, when truth has value it is hidden. A special thanks to Griffin, the truth is hidden no more.
