"I just finished ordering another 6 complete sets of your Uncle Eric books, for my kids.  I now have 8 sets.  I can't say enough good things about these books.  I own over 13,000 books and consider myself well-educated, but your books are more clear and concise, yet contain more useful information, than almost any other book I've ever read.  I give them a place of honor in my library next to the sets of Shelby Foote's Civil War and Gibbon's Decline and Fall.  Very good company." — reader S.C.


The Uncle Eric series of books is written by Richard Maybury for young and old alike. Mr. Maybury plays the part of an economist writing a series of letters to his niece or nephew.

Using stories and examples, he gives clear, simple explanations of topics that are generally thought to be too difficult for anyone but experts.

Richard Maybury has penned eleven books in the Uncle Eric series. His books have been endorsed by top business leaders including former U.S. Treasury Secretary William Simon. He has been interviewed on more than 350 radio and TV shows across America. He has been married for more than 50 years, has lived abroad, traveled around the world, and visited 48 states and 40 countries. His 2,500-year view of the history of politics and economics makes him truly a teacher for all ages.

Porter Stansberry, editor of Stansberry Investment Advisory writes, "For those who are unfamiliar with Maybury's work, it's important to know his Uncle Eric book series is one of the best educations on history, liberty, personal responsibility, and the idea of America that you can find anywhere, for any price. If some bizarre stroke of fate put me in charge of the American educational system, I would stay on the job for less than one day. That day would consist of me flushing the whole corrupt system, mandating every child study and understand the Uncle Eric series, and retiring before lunch. If you have children who you'd like to see grow up right – or if you want to learn more about the subjects above – the Uncle Eric series is a must-read."
