I found this book absolutely fascinating although it really is for people very interested in financial history. It's not a light read.

There were a lot of lessons but as I read the quotes from the bankers two centuries ago I thought nothing has changed. My favourite bit is when they are selling governments bonds from European peripheral countries and deriding their customers for being stupid enough to buy them! The quotes could have been taken from an investment bankers email last year.

Even the public criticism of the bankers for their bonuses and huge wealth are exactly the same as today (although minus the anti-Semitism).

Reading Niall Fergusons's book about the Rothschilds was a please. Very well documented, captures European history of late XVIII and early XIX centuries as well as the family's moves during those times in their quest to speculate and get rich.
Looking forward to read the sequel.

If it is conspiracy theory you are after look elsewhere. If however you want an incredibly well researched book on the House of Rothschild and the periods of history they span then this is a good intelligent read. Ferguson is an historian at the top of his game and he produces the goods here. My only criticism is that I would have liked a bit more juicy gossip and it is very long. However in fairness it is also a huge subject and I don't think it would have been possible to cover it in less pages and Ferguson does history not Hello Magazine
