Synopsis

Here's a useful and entertaining study of something we all need to have and hate to need - money. The author casts a collector's eye on coins and banknotes as a hobby, touching on stamps and postal marks, and puts our love affair with lucre into an historical perspective. Currencies and nationhood being inevitably intertwined, European politics and the perils of the euro - now limping and threatening to topple us too - are critically addressed. The author uses anecdotes and poetry to plead for peaceful solutions, for caution rather than greed, and careful giving rather than squandered overseas aid. This instructive and uplifting work deserves the attention of anyone who 'heapeth up riches, and cannot tell who shall gather them' - in other words, you and me.
