The Money Machine: How the City Works by Philip Coggan
5 of 7 people found the following review helpful
This is a great book; the short diversions on the history behind things are entertaining and informative, although at times some there are several pages of definition after definition of various financial instruments which were a little dull to read.

But BEWARE: even though this claims to be "fully revised and updated", it is actually a 2002 edition and a lot of the information is out-of-date/superseded/no longer relevant, particularly as several political references are made. In this sense it was rather mis-sold.

This would therefore mean that the picture just shows what the item would look like with a stand."

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 19 Mar 2005
Having bought this on hearing it on Radio 3, I can thoroughly recommend this recording (of the Martin mass). I was slightly dubious on a recording by an all-male choir since personally I prefer the sound of a mixed adult choir, but somehow the voices blend perfectly and James O'Donnell's direction is fantastic. Every listen reveals new delights, and the music itself is so layered and haunting, particularly the beginning of the Sanctus.
I've not listened to the Pizzetti - I just skip back to the beginning as soon as the mass finishes. But the money is worth it just for the Martin.
