G. EDWARD GRIFFIN is a writer and documentary film producer with many successful titles to his credit. Listed in Who’s Who in America, he is well known because of his talent for researching difficult topics and presenting them in clear terms that all can understand. He has dealt with such diverse subjects as archaeology and ancient Earth history, the Federal Reserve System and international banking, terrorism, internal subversion, the history of taxation, U.S. foreign policy, the science and politics of cancer therapy, the Supreme Court, and the United Nations.

His better-known works include The Creature from Jekyll Island, World without Cancer, The Discovery of Noah’s Ark, Moles in High Places, The Open Gates of Troy, No Place to Hide, The Capitalist Conspiracy, More Deadly than War, The Grand Design, The Great Prison Break, and The Fearful Master.

G. Edward Griffin was born in Detroit, Michigan, on November 7, 1931. While in grade school, he performed as a child actor on every radio-drama series that originated in Detroit, including The Lone Ranger, The Hermit’s Cave, The Ford Theater, and Story Time. As a senior in high school, he was the Master-of-Ceremonies on the CBS series, Make Way for Youth. He was graduated from Redford High School in 1949.

Ed Griffin attended the University of Michigan from 1949 to 1953 where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech and Communications. During most of that time, he worked as a staff announcer at the University’s radio station WUOM. In 1950, he became a member of the ATΩ fraternity and was Vice President in his senior year.

He married Patricia Ann Irving, a student nurse at the University Hospital, on June 27, 1953, at St. Mary’s Chapel. The wedding reception was held at the ATΩ fraternity house. They took up residence in Ann Arbor. t was shortly after this that Ed became an Assistant Director at WWJ-TV, the NBC affiliate in nearby Detroit.

He was called into military service in 1954 and received basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, followed by an assignment at Fort Bliss, Texas, in the ant-aircraft branch of the Army. After training to be an electronic specialist for maintaining radar systems, he was made an instructor. That assignment, however, was short lived. Because of his civilian experience in communications and entertainment, he was moved to the Special Services division at Fort Bliss and, for the balance of his enlistment, served as the coordinator of USO tours and local troop-entertainment programs.

Upon discharge from military service in 1956, Ed, Patricia, and their first-born son James moved to the West Coast to see what fortunes were waiting in Hollywood. As it turned out, there were none. As Ed explains it: “Hollywood is a magnet that attracts talent from around the world. It soon became obvious that people with greater talent than mine were wasting their lives washing cars and bussing dishes while waiting for their big chance. I had a family to support and didn’t want to travel that road. I decided to get a real job.”

In 1958, he went to work for a large insurance company, the Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States, and became a specialist in group-insurance programs. Rising quickly through the ranks, he was poised for a promising career at executive levels of the company when he became aware of political and social trends that greatly concerned him. By 1961, he was convinced that all his plans for economic security and a rewarding life were to no avail if the underlying system of freedom is destroyed. To the amazement of all, he tendered his resignation at the Equitable and accepted employment as an organizer for an activist organization, The John Birch Society. He served in this capacity for several years and soon was promoted to the rank of Major Coordinator for the Western U.S. region. In 1963 he was designated as an official spokesman for the organization. Mr. Griffin left employment with the Society in 1965 to become an independent publisher and producer of documentary films through his company, American Media. He published The Life and Words of Robert Welch, Founder of The John Birch Society in 1975. (Click here for Mr. Griffin's comments on the Society's controversial image.)

In preparation for writing his book on the Federal Reserve System, he enrolled in the College for Financial Planning located in Denver, Colorado. His goal was not to become a professional financial planner but to better understand the real world of investments and money markets. He obtained his CFP designation (Certified Financial Planner) in 1989. The first edition of his book, The Creature from Jekyll Island; A Second Look at the Federal Reserve, was published in 1994. In 2002, Ed founded Freedom Force International, a holographic organization (with highly dispersed leadership) dedicated to the victory of individualism over collectivism. It now has members in over 65 countries.

He has four children: James David, Daniel Allen, Ralph Edward, and Kathleen Marie. He and his wife Patricia reside in Thousand Oaks, California.

G. Edward Griffin is a recipient of the Telly Award for excellence in television production, the creator of the Reality Zone Audio Archives, and President of American Media, a publishing and video production company in Southern California. He has served on the board of directors of The National Health Federation and The International Association of Cancer Victors and Friends and is Founder and President of The Cancer Cure Foundation. He is the founder of The Coalition for Visible Ballots, a grassroots organization for the elimination of vote fraud made possible by electronic vote-counting systems. He is publisher of Unfiltered News, a weekly analysis of world events, and is Founder and President of Freedom Force International.

Ordering Online at Reality Zone
Is Safe and Easy.

Buying from our site is easy and secure. Reality Zone uses a fully secure, on-line electronic shopping cart system to process your orders. You don’t have to fill out a registration form or download software to shop here. Your personal information is protected and stored on a separate computer.

For every in-stock item, there is an "Order" button. This button adds the item to your shopping basket. For example, if you see a video you would like to buy, click the "Order" button that appears directly below the video description. A screen will appear showing that the item has been added to your shopping cart. On this screen, you can change the quantity you want to order. (The price will change when you hit enter or when you change screens.) If you wish to continue browsing through the collection, click on the "continue" button, and you will go back to the catalogue. If you get a warning telling you that you are about to go to an "unsecure" document, this is because the "shopping cart" is the only area of our site that requires special security measures.

You can see the contents of your cart anytime by clicking the "Shopping Cart" button that appears in the left hand corner of each main-category page. Putting something in your cart does not commit you to buying it. You can remove it at any time by clicking the "Order Form" button and removing that item.

You will see a "Register here" button on the order form. This is optional — register if you don't want to have to fill out your shipping and billing information each time you order. Be sure to keep this information handy; if you forget your password you will have to e-mail us and wait for us to get back to you. When you are ready to place an order, log in at the Registration section and it will bring up the information you filled out when you registered.

If you click on the Order button and get no response, it may be because you have an older browser, in which case you should upgrade, or your business may not allow you to connect. You can check with the person who handles your computers, order from home, or you can contact us.

What Cookies are and why our site uses them.

A cookie is simply an ID — a piece of data. They can be used to snoop and you are right to be concerned about them, but we don't use them that way. Our site uses them to keep track of your order. We don't collect any personal information about you, and we don't keep your cookies on file.

You can browse our site at any time without accepting cookies. However, if you want to order more than one item using the shopping cart, a cookie is used to process the information. If we didn't use cookies (or some equivalent approach), we would have no way to make our shopping cart work.

To learn more about cookies, you can go to Netscape's document entitled "Cookies and Privacy". If you have set your browser to warn you when a cookie is being requested, you may want to look into a program called Cookie Crusher that allows you to accept cookies from specific sites and refuse them from others.

There are several ways you can order from us without having to accept cookies or enter your credit card number. You can mail in your order, with a check made out to American Media or Reality Zone. You can call us or fax in your order, or e-mail us at order@realityzone.com. However, if you do e-mail us, do not put your credit card information in the e-mail. You can call us with the credit card number later.

For orders placed outside the U.S., we can accept major credit cards and checks, but the checks must be in U.S. dollars and drawn against a U.S. bank. We cannot accept PayPal outside the U.S. because of difficulties in authorizing exact shipping charges, which usually are not known at the time orders are placed.
Call for details.

Please contact us for special discounts on large orders, or see the Volume Discount Sheet in the table below.

Shipping Outside the U.S.

Orders outside the U.S. are normally sent airmail, but we reserve the right to ship "best way" unless you specify it. Insurance is recommended, because, without it, delivery cannot be guaranteed. Note that UPS charges can run twice as much as airmail and UPS charges a brokerage fee for all orders. If you choose UPS, we will normally confirm that you want this form of shipment before we ship. If you don't need us to contact you, you will need to advise us in the comments section of the order form that you understand that the UPS charges will be higher and that you are okay with that.

Note: Our shipping and handling does not cover any customs fees that may be charged by countries of destination.

We cannot send products COD for orders outside the United States.
