"Brilliant... A fascinating new way of telling the story of what money is" -- John Lanchester Guardian "A superb synthesis...a lucid, colourful introduction to 3,000 years of monetary history... So replete with literary and historical examples that the story almost tells itself" -- Martin Sandbu Financial Times "Magnificent - hugely imaginative, clear, coherent" -- Robert Skidelsky "Fizzing with ideas" Sunday Telegraph "Compulsively readable" New York Times "A most accessible and thrilling read. If you want to read just one book about money, this is it" -- Ha-Joon Chang "If you don't know about economics, this is a really good introduction...gets right to the heart of it" -- Misha Glenny "It's a wealth of understanding for understanding wealth" Esquire "Combines breadth of scholarship with a wealth of practical experience in tackling the most elusive of economic subjects - the nature of money" -- John Kay "Martin's remarkable book, Money, is economic history - and indeed cultural anthropology - with a difference... His sparkling book is worth taking seriously" -- Raymond Tallis Prospect
