Jeffrey Tucker’s book publishing venture, Laissez Faire Book’s is a scam. Honestly, the sales page alone should be the biggest tip off. It’s reminiscent of a ClickBank “squeeze page." (Exhibit A – Exhibit B)

The Laissez Faire Letter, which is the cheapest "plan" for LFB, is a very short, two-page item that looks like a newspaper, but just has a few blogs that are freely available on the LFB website. The blogs themselves are often rewritten from the past, just like Liberty Guides and the books in the Library. Different authors will literally rewrite what another said in the past and republish it. In addition to the Laissez Faire letter, you get an occasional e-mail with aggregated news links freely available on the web.

From looking at Jeffrey Tucker’s other ventures I gather that full LFB membership includes eBooks that are freely available elsewhere, and the “12-minute executive summaries” are a rehashing of what’s already been said on blogs and YouTube.

I've written a full report on Tucker's and Laissez Faire Books here. The fact is though that this "service" is only providing resources that are already freely available on the web and it's authors are constantly rewriting old articles that have already appeared in the letter.
