This book is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how money works: the past, the present, and the future. I watched the author on TV one late night and he was impressive. Niall Ferguson did a good job by providing solid examples that leaves the listener/reader spell-bound by the depth of his research and the simplistic way he communicated his knowledge.
Ferguson has spurred my desire to understand in greater detail subjects like: Stock market-(bonds,options, hedge funds etc, Monetary Policy (I have just bought a book by Milton Friedman - inspired by you).
This is a transformative book and I am greatly indebted to Niall.
The authors did a good job diagnosing the recent crisis and prescribing the treatment and prevention of subsequent booms and busts. Simply, the work of genius. I am sometimes in awe by the enormity of work that has gone into this book and yet presented in very simple way.Very thankful to listen to such a lecture at this price!
I also want to credit the reader: L.J. Ganser!"Preposterous!" His voice is best suited to the subject. By comparison he dwarfs most readers and I am now hesitant to listen to other audiobooks not read by him.
