In The New Case for Gold, James Rickards explains why gold is one of the safest assets for investors in times of political instability and market volatility and how every investor should look to add gold to his or her portfolio.

Clear, direct and very relevant

Highly recommend listening. Very interesting, well researched and covers the topic from a macro to micro level in plane English without going off on a tangents. James describes the monitory system in a very clear and easy to understand way by sticking closely to his point at all times. Will definitely re-listen. Should form part of education system as mandatory reading..

I think this is a must read A+

I enjoyed this book and will likely read it again, it has been very informative and well written also easy to understand. I’m only new to this game I’m definitely worried about the future, but like they say knowledge is power and I feel like although I have more questions on this topic they would fall outside the scope of this book. A+ to J Rickards. I found this book because of Robert Kiyosaki’s pod cast and interview with James. Robert makes it clear to his listeners to be financial literate. Here’s to 1 of 100 Robert for the year. Great job James!

Rickards presents an excellent and timely thesis.

James Rickards presents a thoughtful and timely analysis of gold's role today, especially in the context of a larger and more complex global system of finance and markets.

Compelling, fact based and unapologetically honest

Jim's understanding of monetary policy, fiat currencies history and insider information of government behaviour makes his new case for gold hard to argue against. He cleverly combines simple facts, statistical evidence and complexity theory to paint a clear picture for a new case of the oldest, truest form of money. I cannot wait to get stuck into his two other books.

Ooh! So Darn Enlightening.

I had no idea things were this dire.

I feel better informed and see the value in buying physical gold.

This is now a solid part of my investment strategy.

There is so much insight in this book. Fascinating!

Will not convince gold bears, nothing ever does.

J Rickards eloquently puts forth the new case for gold, which isn't really new, of course. As he is probably aware, this "new" case for gold will do nothing to convince gold bears, but there are some surprising revelations to give you pause, and if you're in for the long haul, you will be just fine. Enjoyed it as I expected, as aI share Rickards view, but there is a lot in there and I need to listen to it again.

Great book for Goldbugs

This is a great book which lays out the case for holding a portion of your wealth in Gold and Silver. It covers the history behind gold and silver as a metal, the historical effects of inflation as well as how to go about investing in gold. Much like James Rickard's other books I would highly recommend this.

Nothing I haven't heard before

Almost everything I have heard on this audio book I have heard before in other books or interviews by James Rickards. Disappointed he had nothing new to bring to the book. All the information I could have got for free from reading his articles and by listening to his interviews.
