Some media coverage of our books has called Silver Lake Publishing a libertarian press. We think of our books as practical more than political. Silver Lake Publishing's mission-to give our readers tools for making smart, aggressive decisions on risk and financial matters-has been the same since we started. Times and circumstances have moved toward our specialty. Most of what is written about business and money matters pushes agendas-either explicitly or implicitly.
