So, I bought the full Kindle edition. I was quite disappointed: that little timeline at the beginning of the book (which I thought was just a guide to the rest of the book) is all that there is! Not only that, but significant events were completely left out (the indebtedness of colonial farmers due to repurchasing money at less than face value, Bretton Woods/IMF, and many others).
I would really like to see the author rewrite this book with the following changes:
1. Add in some of the missing significant events.
2. Remove most of the detail from the timeline so that it really is just an index/timeline
3. Write the rest of the book with the timeline as a guide, going into the details. I.e., make this into a textbook based on the timeline!
Without that, this is just very poor Cliff notes for a book that should exist, but doesn't.
