This was an interesting read. It dispels the common knowledge we have about the history of money and the role of debt and markets. It has challenged my perspective about the role of debt today. Recommended.
This is a well-written read about the structured products that were a main reason behind the current financial crisis. I liked reading the perspective of some of the people who had a big involvement and why they did what they did.
This is a book that you don't need to read from cover to cover. You can pick it up, flick to any of the 100 chapters and start reading. I like how each chapter is 3 pages long and provides a balanced critique of logical errors and rhetoric that you hear often in conversation and articles. Each chapter also cross-references other similar chapters which helps you to compare and contrast. I am re-reading chapters again and highlighting the best parts. I find that I have been a clearer thinker after reading it and I am better at picking through waffle when reading articles.
