He derives a conclusion that is sound and well worth doing by our central bankers and US Treasury officials. There's an entire page devoted to shell voicings. This is an outstanding book, and I believe most anyone would do well to become familiar with Rickards' argument. It is unfortunate that I am unable to fully comprehend the idea as I am not all too familiar with the gold standard.

Highly recommended. By Geoffrey Packe. The Death of Money: More interestingly, he writes about what could come next: Reform and Evolution in the International Monetary System , is an attention getter. This columnist, too, is not persuaded that death of money is imminent. Rickards states as reported by this blog:. What I try to do is provide a more in-depth analysis describing what will come next, what the future international monetary system will look like.
I point out that the international monetary system has already collapsed three times within the last years—, , and —and that another collapse would not be at all unusual.
I talk about what that reformation will look like. He goes on to strip the bark off of some of the criticisms of, and polemics surrounding, the gold standard. Rickards then disposes of the even more pernicious myth that the true gold standard caused and perpetuated the Great Depression.
The gold exchange standard was, at best, a pale imitation of a true gold standard and, at worst, a massive fraud.
The sequence of events from to shows that the Great Depression was caused not by gold but rather by central bank discretionary policies. Central bank mismanagement as causing the Great Depression is in no way a fringe claim. Regarding the Great Depression. When it comes to Tim Richards books, your plate is full and you don't go away hungry. There's a lot to digest in these books, but the nice thing is you can also open them up at random and find something useful to work on.
These books are as good in bits and pieces as they are whole. I'm happy to say that it looks like Tim Richards takes solo jazz piano seriously, which is nice because solo jazz piano is serious.
I find that most books on jazz piano tend to skip over the most important part, being able to sit down and play a solo jazz piano performance. You are never far away from something relates to your solo piano playing in his books. There are a lot of books with chords, theory, lines, and licks, but in order to hold a steady solo piano gig, you need to know how to put that stuff together into music, and not just comping and bebop lines.
It took me a long time to figure out the solo piano thing, but I didn't have books like this to work with. I wish these books had been around when I was pouring over everything I could find. Tim Richards Exploring Jazz Piano books would have made the journey less frustrating because the ideas and techniques in them are presented clearly and make perfect sense. The books are also full of anecdotes, great photos and historical facts regarding musicians and jazz, and a plenty of tid-bits from the author such as when he met or played with someone that give it a nice personal touch.
What has put these books over the top is that the author is very good at supporting you as you get your mind around new material because he keeps it fun while being serious and helping you figure out how to use it in your playing. The jazz piano material found in books like Exploring Jazz Piano can be difficult to put into writing and you'll find that in many books out there it's often presented poorly.
Not here. Tim Richards has done a great job of presenting difficult material in a fun and focused way. I recommend these books to anyone looking for a complete guide to playing jazz piano. So, bottom line is that these are great books.
If these had been around back in the late 80's when I was scavenging every book I could get my hands on, all I would have needed were Tim's books. He literally covers everything, and includes a CD with tracks of all the tunes and more.
