Publisher's Summary

Investment industry veteran E.B. Tucker shows listeners the gold market from the inside.

This three-part book breaks gold down into must know sections:

  1. Why Gold?: History reveals an ugly pattern of governments spending tomorrow’s hard-earned savings today leaving unknowing savers holding the bag.
  2. Why Now?: Recent events foretell a dangerous future for money today.
  3. A Gold Market “How To” Manual: From bars to coins and everything in between Tucker walks listeners through the gold market in simple terms.

There’s a reason why the world’s elite count gold as a core asset. During periods of financial turmoil, it’s invaluable.

Gold is the only asset that's not someone else's liability. Apartments rely on paying tenants, stocks rely on company profits, bonds rely on stable interest payments. Gold doesn't rely on anyone or anything for its value.

Tucker guides investors in simple terms through the ways to own gold, from physical bars, to coins, and even mining stocks. He reveals his favorite method, gold royalty companies.

From a financial novice to an investment professional looking to get up to speed on the gold market, Why Gold? Why Now? is the essential guide to the world of gold.

Great History, First-Hand Experience, Storytelling

The author, E. B. Tucker, explains the history of gold in the U.S. with uncanny color and clarity. Then, with that background, he gives great investment advice for the sector. This is the clearest, simplest and most entertaining gold investing & speculating handbook on the market. It's very valuable for beginning and intermediate investors who want to wade into this market without losing their shirts. His stories and first-hand experiences as a gold fund manager and board member of a precious metals royalty and streaming company underscore and add color to his narrative. At the end he lays out sensible advice on how to know when to get in and out of the gold market, and how to manage your risk. Given his board position, you'd expect he would talk his book a lot more than he does. He maintains remarkable objectivity and clarity for investors.

Good intro PM’s

E.B. does a good job of explaining the basics of gold and silver to the new investor. The first 3/4 of the book explain monetary history, his track record and potential of gold/silver. The last hour holds all meat and potatoes. A lot of concepts and topics I already heard before from people like Mike Maloney and Peter Schiff. It’s clear E.B. Tucker has done his research and knows gold. I like how E.B. breaks down physical metals to own ... like mines and coin properties. I wish he would have provided a little more detail on non-physical investments. Besides MTA, which he sits on the board, he could have explained miners, explorers, etfs and tradable companies further. Nothing beats physical, overall good book for someone new to precious metals.

Fantastic and Timely

E.B. Tucker’s book Why Gold? Why Now? is timely and fanatic. Easy to follow packed with great facts. This book along with Mike Maloney’s book Guide to Investing Gold & Silver are the two must reads. Both give you the history and data. Both authors share similar beliefs and their differences are worth discovering and considering by the read. Both are 5 star and add much value in this realm!

I don't agree with his views on bitcoin but definitely sounds like he knows his stuff when it comes to gold.

Great book - get knowledgeable & confident in Gold

Love this book. As a UK investor I have always wanted to understand more about gold. This book gives you the knowledge in Gold to understand why it should be a part of all investors tool box. I am now confident in the different ways to purchase gold and the pro's and cons. Not only does it explain gold at a level all can understand. It talks about economics, government policies and why we are where we are and the arguments for Gold. Also it explains how history is always a guide to the future - thanks EB Tucker.
