By Peter E. Kirkup on February 16, 2007
Format: Hardcover
As a historian (former corporate historian for Grumman Aerospace) and an educator, I found Mr. Mudds book informative, insightful and entertaining! It is especially useful to educators as an introduction to the amazing world of money. The author has a wonderful way of presenting historial events and anecdotes that is compelling to all age groups. The illustrations and photographs are especially striking. My students are actually vying for the privelege of borrowing it. If you are a history or business teacher it is sure to become a classroom favorite!

I noted in some previous reviews that the author, Mr. Mudd, has been misunderstood in regards to his comments on the introduction of new dollar coins. If one were to take the effort to review his original quote, it is clear that he was not saying the dollar coin has never been successful, but rather, for it to be successful, the existing paper notes must first be withdrawn. It is understandable for children to misread data but it is sad when adults do so.

This is a wonderful overview of the world's money, written in a concise, knowledgeable manner. The illustrations a magnificent and I would recommend it to anyone with any interest in the subject. But then isn't everyone interested in money? If you read this and remember half of it, you will be an expert of the highest order.

While some of the "reviews" here do not even really review the book, here is the real story. This is a beautiful collection of illustrations of coins and currency from all over the world. I obviously could not afford to include some of the items illustrated here in my own collection -- they are just too expensive. But owning this book is a great substitute.

This book lives up to its title. This is an extremely large area to cover and spends most of its pages on modern issues. The first chapter presents the early history of money in a nice short, but fairly comprehensive way. The book is mostly photos which should make the subject interesting to most readers. Many examples are not out of the reach price wise for the average collector. I find that appealing and found a number of items that I would like to add to my personal collection. There are many high quality color photographs of both coins and banknotes. This is not a good reference for identifying money, but rather a brief overview of money from its beginning to present day. I found a number of subjects that triggered the desire to know more. It is an excellent introduction to the field of world numismatics and will help most to see the big picture from a global historic perspective.
