E-mail from author Edwin Black:
Hello all... at about 8:25 today Good Morning America was doing a segment on how to burglar proof your house. Then they showed a hollowed out book to hide jewelry in. It was Banking on Baghdad by Edwin Black, which they showed a close-up of for a long time. The reporter said, "Now nobody is going to look in Banking on Baghdad for jewelry!" I have long argued that my books have lasting value. This proves it. Also see the book on the icon link at bottom right. The book question shows up at around the 3:30 minute mark for 30-seconds in this 4-minute. You can't wrap jewelry in a newspaper. Books are always your best value. Enjoy.
My review of Banking on Baghdad is here.
