Interesting economic history lesson
Good book and well researched but it does drag a bit. I have a degree in economics and it gives a nice history of the gold standard. However, the anecdotal mythological stories about gold in the beginning do not really mesh well with the rest of the story.

The Power of Gold is a great read
In a time of economic instability, many people turn to gold as a "safe port in the storm". This book is a great read telling about the history of humanity's love for gold.
