I think the most interesting thing is to realize is that Ron Paul is now the number two man in the Republican Party pegged for the up coming presidential election. Would I vote for him? I'll have to think about it but it sure will make and interesting election.
I would encourage everybody to read this book for two reasons: 1) His thoughts may inform and challenge you in what you believe about the economy and, 2) As a major political player it would be good to know what he's talking about so you would know whether you would want to support him or not. Ron Paul is definately not the mainstream candidate.
I will note that I thought the CD was the way to go because the pace was fast. I think reading the book might be a little bogged down at times but I did wish I could look things up and go over them a couple times. The last three chapters were great so if you start and decide not to finish skip to the end. Chapter 13 was especially well summarized.
