A quick romp through financial world history

The Ascent of MoneyNiall Ferguson’s lively romp through financial history – The Ascent of Money –¬† doesn’t disappoint. His examples are enlightening, his data points always fresh and his grasp of the subject second to none. This book will take you through Rothschild’s “big bet” on the British at Waterloo (he made a packet), the origins of banking and the humble and beginnings of the insurance industry in Scotland.

I would recommend this as required reading to all consultants in the banking and financial services industries.
