Uncle Eric takes a decidedly different track when talking about Personal, Career and Financial security--he writes about "models", paradigms that people often don't often like to question, or look beyond. Extrapolating these models to Austrian Economics and British Common Law, Uncle Eric ties together historical concepts, political concepts, and even how to test and verify the models of others. Only after students are thoroughly instructed in thinking about the manner in which to approach money & life, are models for success given. Give your students a fundamental understanding of how the world's mindset operates, and the tools needed to check the facts for themselves. 191 pages, softcover.

Presented in the same letter-format as his other bestselling "Uncle Eric" books, Richard Maybury writes of how to recognize true "booms" and when the investment dries up, as it did in California, do as the clipper ships did, and find a new area to move and conduct business in.

This world profoundly needs an understanding of the long history between "The West" and the Islamic cultures of the Middle East. As "Uncle Eric" writes epistle after epistle the reader clearly sees through layers and layers of propaganda put out by the government, as well as through the overly-simplistic, modern views held by the young country of America. Filled with history, Maybury gives the perfect amount of detail as he works his way through the crusades to the colonialist "interests" of Britain, Russia & the U.S. to finally the current wars in the Middle East. Lamenting the United State's decision to ever become involved in Islamic affairs when it invaded the "shores of Tripoli" in the 1800s, Maybury convincingly explains the bitter grudges held by Muslims who have continually been occupied by Western forces for the last thousand years; and provides a blueprint on how to get out it while we still can. 271 pages, softcover.

Looking at neutrality, fascism, The "Old War" cycle of wars, manifest destiny, Switzerland's example, "The White Man's Burden" and other elements that led to the U.S. government's involvement, Maybury presents a radically different view of a war that's been so romanticized and lauded by Hollywood and History. 253 pages, softcover with index and glossary.

Gain a complete understanding of the players involved in World War II; stepping far away from the glory-filled praises of the Allies during World War II, "Uncle Eric" recounts the atrocities committed by Stalin (who killed twice as many people as Hitler), the British (who hunted Aborigines in Australia and set up concentration camps in S. Africa), and Americans (against Native Americans). Exposure of "Anglo-Saxonism", and Hitler's death tolls of Jews, minorities, and other political dissenters provide a wide-angle view of the Old World Conflict that began after a complex mix of the effects of the Treaty of Versailles and a long history of European conquests. Offering a different perspective on American involvement, World War II presents evidence that Roosevelt deliberately provoked the Pearl Harbor attack, that Hitler was already finished when America went to war, and other reasons why American neutrality should never have been abandoned. 349 indexed pages, softcover.
