To break free of some banking taboos,

This review is from: The Bankers' New Clothes: What's Wrong with Banking and What to Do about It (Hardcover)
The editor must have persuaded the authors to write for a five year old with an absorbing interest in finance, a wholly imaginary character. As a result, the first sixty pages are taxing to the reader's patience. However, once the authors get down to business and drop the pretence of guiding the five-year-old through the intricacies of banking, the book becomes interesting, Of course, both authors are extremely knowledgeable professionals. Both have come out strongly against banks' reluctance to increase capital, and have made their arguments known. The book restates them in very readable form. I would think this should be of interest to economists and economics teachers, perhaps even to economics students.

I can assure you that there are plenty of oldish persons like myself with the financial acumen of a five year old! I'm glad your overall assessment is positive.

I have yet to met a 5 year old with an "absorbing interest in finance".
