Reviews for George Gilder books

Life After Google

Financial Times Book of the Month

“Nothing Mr. Gilder says or writes is ever delivered at anything less than the fullest philosophical decibel… Mr. Gilder sounds less like a tech guru than a poet, and his words tumble out in a romantic cascade.”

— The Wall Street Journal

“Google’s algorithms assume the world’s future is nothing more than the next moment in a random process. George Gilder shows how deep this assumption goes, what motivates people to make it, and why it’s wrong: the future depends on human action.”

— Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies and author

The Scandal of Money

“Why do we think governments know how to create money? They don’t. George Gilder shows that money is time, and time is real. He is our best guide to our most fundamental economic problem.” 

Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies and author

“Thirty-five years ago, George Gilder wrote Wealth and Poverty, the bible of the Reagan Revolution. With The Scandal of Money he may have written the road map to the next big boom.” 

Arthur B. Laffer, Economist and author

“Gilder pushes us to think about the government monopoly on money and makes a strong case against it. If you believe in economic freedom, you should read this book.”

Senator Jim DeMint, former U.S. Senator

“If you are an entrepreneur, own your own business or aspire to the American Dream of being fabulously wealthy someday, you will love this book. You will validate your ambition. You will see why your goals are totally reasonable and why you should never, ever stop trying to reach the brass ring of the American Dream. If you are watching for the mailman to make sure your government check is about to hit this book is not for you. If you think everyone is entitled to the same salary, the same job, the same house and no responsibility then don’t buy this book!”
