      Part historical documentary / commentary & part obvious design element breakdowns, this left me feeling as though the author put together a few colloqial bar stories about the dollar bill, googled the rest and cobbled it together in the least interesting thing I have read this year.

      Readers who read this book were probably intrigued and are conspiracy theorists who want to know the truth, but does this book accomplish that? The Secret Symbols of the Dollar Bill by David Ovasion is a book that tries to show readers the "magical meaning of the symbols on the dollar bill" although readers learn some stuff that they didn't know it is information that is easily attainable in the modern world. The first literary element would be Imagery. Although this book lacks in many places Im [...]

      "Fascinating." "Extraordinary." "Dazzling." Breathless adjectives like this, taken directly from the blurb on the back cover, echo the tone of the book itself. While purporting to reveal "the fascinating secret meanings behind the design of the money we use every day," this book instead merely presents a series of more-or-less unconnected factoids about the various images found on the US $1 bill. Sadly, Ovason's writing style wrings all the power and magic out of a fascinating premise and replac [...]

      In some instances the author stretches a bit far to try and prove his points, but for the most part this is a very interesting book to learn of some of the symbology behind those little bits of art in everyone's pocket; the dollar bill. What is applicable without reaching is very well researched with archival pictures to back it up. One small detail the author did miss that I noticed only because I was recently reading a book on art deco, is that there is some minor bits of art deco in the dolla [...]

      I picked this book up because I am interested in the hidden history of the world, especially that in the United States. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed in Ovason's work. He could have summed up the information in this short read in a paper the size of an undergrad thesis. The research is there, but he does what I often disdain in books and television shows - stretching the story out by repeating information over and over again, often interrupted by commercials in the tv world. What t [...]

      Mr. Ovason gives 100 historical "facts", some of which he refutes in the back of the book in the "Notes" section. Many references to the King James version of The Bible, and many Masonic references, naturally, because our founding fathers were Masons and a God-fearing bunch of men. I couldn't "get" why I should fold up the dollar bill, or use a ruler, to see that the second "A" in America coincided with. . . well, you get the idea. 50% of the book is history, 20% supposition, and the rest was in [...]

      I chose the book" the Secret Symbols of the Dollar Bill" by David Ovason because this book caught my eye in the stores.It gives a closer look or meaning to the dollar Bill we use everyday. It talks about the stars, the eagle, the great seal, and the words and what they mean of the dollar bill."peace and war" would be my favorite quote because the eagle is arrows and olive branches which means peace and war. The author's writing style is more in a teacher trying to teach something but in an inter [...]

      Well, now I know what all those symbols on the back of the dollar bill stand for. What is missing is me really caring about them now. While the facts are presented pretty straight forward, they're pretty much just expressed in a numbered series of facts broken into short units that are related. Parts were mildly interesting and many parts not so much. I'll probably forget much of this in a few days.

    • Jacob says:

      This was a quick read and very informative! The author isn't much of a writer or story teller. He sticks to the facts and moves forward and in many ways I liked that style. I learned a lot about our nation's symbolism and the dollar bill. I'm glad I picked this one up!

    • Adam says:

      Mildly informative book about the history of the design of American money. Short with lots of illustrations. Finished it in 2 sittings, I think.

    • Daniel says:

      pretty interesting though i find discrepancies in what this book and others say about the bill regarding certian symbols, it still goes alot more in-depth about the content of the art work.

      Learn all about the Occultic Jewish and Freemason symbols on the dollar bill. The slave owning Freemason scumbags that founded America have flaunted their planned new world order for centuries.

    • Keith says:

      Lots of info on the symbolism and where the symbols came from but nothing on how to fold a dollar into a boat or turn George into a mushroom.

    • Todd Stockslager says:

      Meaningless astrological and numerological twaddle whose only redeeming characteristic is that it doesn't waste much paper.
