Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bible or mini encyclopedia? The title of this book originally attracted me by its offer of a wealth of information. I thought this would be a good beginning to learn some economics and capitalism knowledge. Indeed, the verdict is that overall it is still an interesting book if you wish to get a glimpse of what the money jargon such as bonds, globalization, central banks, etc., are all about. However, just beware that the materials were presented in a disparate way that at times makes it disappointing - not in depth and coherent enough to fulfill one's curiosity, but technical and complicated enough to frustrate. It is less of a bible, more a mini encyclopedia in semblance.
