Praise for Crash Proof and Crash Proof 2.0

"Schiff was warning us about our fragile economic foundation long before the first cracks started to appear. There are plenty of market cheerleaders out there, but if you want advice from a market realist who has been proven right again and again, read this book."
Glenn Beck, host, The Glenn Beck Program

"The dot–com implosion proves that we all need Peter Schiff′s vision of investing. His view is so global and so unique in its approach, and at a time when we all should be looking to crash–proof our portfolios, Schiff offers us this much–needed life–raft."
Liz Claman, anchor, Fox Business Network

"For those accustomed to America′s economic dominance, Crash Proof is a frighteningly forthright wake–up call. But Peter Schiff is one Cassandra whose voice deserves your rapt attention. Devoid of the usual Wall Street spin, this frank and prophetic read will make you reconsider the very foundations on which your financial house is built."
Jonathan Hoenig, Portfolio Manager, Capitalistpig Hedge Fund LLC and Fox News Channel analyst

David W. Tice, Chief Portfolio Manager, Prudent Bear Funds

"A sober assessment of the financial problems facing our country. Reading this book will prepare you for potential outcomes that Wall Street and the mainstream financial media are completely unaware of."
