According to him, the book has drawn the attention of many Liberians since it openly exposes and documents the illegal activities of numerous executives who have presided over the affairs of the nation’s natural resources.
Mr. Lindstrom said his book is the talk of the town and number one conversation piece in the nation because it exposes government-appointed officials whose illegal actions amounted to the deliberate economic sabotage of his companies.
He explained that the book detailed numerous events of his five long frustrating years at Liberty attempting to resolve issues with seven ex-officials of the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy (MLME).
The Canadian investor expressed the belief that rampant corruption has impeded the flow of much needed investment and greater development in the nation for the betterment of all Liberian lifestyles.
Mr. Lindstrom recalled during the launch of the book several journalists asked where they could get a copy.

The CEO and president of Liberty International Mineral Corporation said that though he was frequently offered US$100 or $200 for the book, he has not sold a single copy. Instead he used the initial printed material as a means to make the international community and major institutional bodies aware of what was happening to him in Liberia.
“The good news is that the book is now available to everybody on the internet. Because this is such an important issue to all Liberians, a website has been set up so that everyone living in the country to download it for free,” he announced.
