This review is from: The New Empire of Debt: The Rise and Fall of an Epic Financial Bubble (Hardcover)
The authors have written not only a well researched and thoroughly documented treatise on economics, history and money -- but they did so in a most enjoyable way! I kept finding myself wanting to read out loud their many pithy and clever 'punch lines' but realized they were enjoyable, clever and funny to me because of the context and background the previous paragraphs (and pages) they had so nicely lofted into my mind! Ah well, some punch lines were SO good that I just couldn't resist sharing them with family and friends. In the end, if said friends didn't understand what I was talking about, I kept recommending they get their own copy of this book. Its an excellent read. Nicely done, gentlemen! You kept me amused while educating me. Plus I had a heck of a good time while reading!
