Money was one of man's greatest inventions. But we have become its slaves.
Money: the Unauthorised Biography unfolds a panoramic secret history and explains the truth about money: what it is, where it comes from, and how it works. Martin believes that the conventional wisdom that today's financial universe evolved from barter, is wrong. Not just wrong, but dangerous.
