From the Inside Flap
"Mr. Bernstein has turned this story—not an obvious golden opportunity for even a writer of Mr. Bernstein's skill—into a real page-turner."
—The Wall Street Journal
"Bernstein . . . does full justice to his material. Almost every chapter contains some detail to surprise or delight. "
"There are sugarplums throughout the book. . . .The pleasure of the bookis in its sheer number of unknown places and interesting episodes."
—The New York Times
"Bernstein's volume is a tour de force with a satisfying conclusion: The charactersin this drama prove themselves 'fools for gold, chasing an illusion.'"
"Admirably written . . . a wonderfully interesting view—not alone of gold but of thegreater economic history. Like other of his work, it is assured of a wide readership."
—John Kenneth Galbraith, Professor of Economics Emeritus, Harvard University
"The triumph of Peter Bernstein's book is that in the end you understand why and how it happened that the golden dog no longer barks. "
—The Boston Globe
"The range of research evident throughout the book is staggering. . . . Bernstein's ear for the telling quote is pitch perfect."
