about

On a summer evening in 1994, the two members of the band KLF burned £1 million in £50 notes in a barn on the Isle of Jura. They filmed themselves tossing the bills into the fire, and made the story public. The reaction amazed them: this act of nihilism caused a public outpouring of rage. They received death threats.

Editorial Reviews

"Claudia Hammond is the ideal tour guide for this hugely enjoyable (if sometimes alarming) journey through the strange psychology of spending and saving. Mind Over Money is both a fascinating exploration of the ways money messes with our heads, and a practical guidebook for how to avoid getting fleeced - whether by others or our own irrational minds." - Oliver Burkeman
