5 thoughts on “Get the Skinny on Silver Investing”

  1. The author, David Morgan sets forth a compilation of his own and several other individuals’ viewpoints as to the supply / demand & fundementals of silver. He cites many experts on the subject and is fairly articulate and concise. He also speaks of 5 or 6 ways for the retail public to invest in silver.

    I was left with several questions after reading his book. What is the true value of silver? What is the best way to invest in silver? Finally, can silver be a “great” investment without a monetary component. Morgan presents his information in an objective fashion and although he obviously favors silver as a cornerstone of investing; he does not preach to his audience. Perhaps the sequel will provide greater depth?

  2. A well written book in simplied terms that can inform the new investor or professional manager/trader. There is some great insight as to why the great underevaluation of silver relative to gold & copper exists. It gives great advice on how one can profit from silver via physicals, futures and stocks. The photography myth is explained as well. For its low cost it a mandatory read for someone considering investment in silver, silver futures/options and/or silve stocks.

  3. The best thing this guy could do is take all the money he has made investing in silver and get this book properly edited and proof-read. It is chock full of grammatical errors, making the read quite unenjoyable. i have no doubt that Mr. Morgan knows about silver, but he needs a do-over; a second edition of this book that is actually readable. It is full of run-ons, incomplete sentences and words that are randomly capitalized. Sorry, but when I buy a published book, I expect a few things- one of which is the ability to read it without a constant stream of bad and obvious errors. One or two mistakes are forgivable, but the entire book is fraught with basic bad writing, making the content of the book difficult to get to.

    I finally put it down. How I wish I had bought a silver eagle with the money I spent on this book.

  4. Content:

    The book contain 11 short chapters which takes us from the fundamentals driving the silver sector as the supply and demand in Chapter 1, then the misconception that photography is the major driver of the silver sector (Chapter 3), fraudulent activities of the silver & gold leasing (Chapter 4). David Morgan explains very well, why silver is money and not a commodity in Chapter 6. Chapter 7 is devoted to the new uses for silver and the coming demand squeeze, Then from chapter 8 to 10 he briefly discuss different types of investments alternatives in the sector with bullion and coins, silver & mining stocks and leveraged type of investments. He finishes with some future price projections for silver.

    Positive:

    – If you read a book about a sector such as small as silver, you want facts, lots of them… the book sums up what you need to know about silver market that is positive!

    – An easy to read book with a good combination of history and economic of the silver sector.

    – The price of the book.

    Negative:

    – Maybe a more balanced view on the silver market (i.e not so bullish all the time).

    Overall i think David Morgan does a good job giving us the skinny on silver in 110 pages. This is one of the few books about the silver sector, and absolutely worth the few hours it takes to read it.

    Serious hard assets investor will be excited reading this book. On the other hand for short term speculators this is unfortunately not a book for you, it will only tell how to invest on silver for the years to come and that is unfortunatly not enough for the trader.

  5. A great book on silver investing. A quick and easy to read book on the fact that silver maybe the last investment left for the have nots in the 21st century.

    The secret to surviving the next few years is keeping your wealth in real money, not in the U.S. dollar. Buy things that hold their value and are exchangeable all over the world. Commodities such as gold and silver have a world market that transcends national borders, politics, religions, and race. A person may not like someone else’s religion, but he’ll accept his gold and silver.

    One of the reasons why I’m bullish on gold and silver is because the American public is still sound asleep to this asset class. Most Americans have no idea how or where to buy physical gold and silver. The outlets that sell gold and silver I have visited are already low on inventory.

    If and when the American public wakes up to the reality that their dollars are not money, but a currency, the panic and stampede will begin. Should that happen, today’s prices for gold and silver will look like bargains. Especially for silver.
