Steven J. Spence's Book Excellence Awards Winner in the Finances category is the book that you don't know you need until you read it. This straightforward guide helps you understand the global monetary system and why the shine is off the U.S. dollar's position as the Gold Standard of world currencies and, more importantly, why that matters for you. Spence, a military veteran and corporate employee-turned-entrepreneur, lays out a concise history of the U.S. monetary system. He's candid about his own life lessons and how he finally found his way out of the debt trap. Next, he shares how he came to discover the hard realities revealed in this informative and shocking read. The author explains in layperson's terms how the institutions (like the Federal Reserve) that control money work and how all of this affects you. He also offers timely insight into what's going on right now from bank failures to crypto currency to inflation and hyper-inflation and offers his opinions on steps the everyday person can take to protect their financial future.

"...simply the most important book I've ever read. Steven Spence carefully articulates a message that explains how the institutions behind money work and how it affects you. Steven Spence's work is on a par with the genius of DaVinci and Copernicus, heretics who proved that Earth revolves around the sun. A remarkable book both in content and timing. A 'must-read' that is an amazing guide to understanding the global monetary system and why the shine is off the U.S. dollar's position as the Gold Standard of world currencies going forward. Steven is a gifted writer and teacher and I confidently predict that 'Money Plain and Simple: What the Institutions and the Elite Don't Want You to Know," brilliantly written and argued, will become the defining book."-John Kerry, Goodreads
