The History of Money

This book takes the reader through mankind's time on Earth and explains clearly and concisely how currency has evolved. He treats the subject matter in such a way that I found myself saying "Well, I'll be!", time and time again. It is amazing that the author can cover the time when they used shells and cocoa for currency right up until the time of forex trading. Obviously he has down scads of research and I was glad to be a beneficiary of it. This book should be mandatory reading for all school children.
