This pithy, wry little guide will tell you where money comes from, what it means, what it's doing to the planet and what we might be able to do about it. A fascinating read. Money and the complex system that makes it work is a man-made product that we invented and yet, like Frankenstein, it has us all in its grip. From the poorest to the wealthiest we worry about money.
