Perfect mix of academic and fun reading

I've read several books on the same subject earlier and yet I find it interesting to continue reading.

The good things: past 500 years well-covered, every concept described in detail, stories written lucidly, and detailed references given at the same page for scholarly reading.

The not-so good things: Europe-centered, so the Indian side of the story is wanting; concepts explained in such detail that scholars may find it slow in some places.

Recommendation: worth a buy because two more of...

Time Value of Money!

Easy Money happens to be one of those few books that come once in a while and introduces concepts, in a story like fashion, for an erudite as well as a casual reader. What I liked about this book, by author Vivek Kaul, is how he has transformed a subject from the realms of economics to a great lucid read. Read it, if you want to understand how money evolved over centuries and more importantly read it for a précis of world history that it offers in its journey. Already waiting for Part 2 and 3...

A gateway to the world of economics

I happened to buy this book in a book fare, got easily lured by just reading the cover of it. Firstly a huge cry out to the author Vivek Kaul, applause for his breathtaking research (each page has some minimum 10 sources).
The book starts with an interesting facts about the history of barter, and then usage of coins and then now the practice of paper notes. The later half of the book is purely devoted to the evolution of banking system in US and UK, which gives you an idea of rise of their c...

well explained

Despite being a management graduate, i often could not get answers for questions like "why do we need banks..why cant we have moneylenders" or "how is currency value decided" or "why is everyone crazy for gold", etc. Well thanks to Vivek, now i know. I am very grateful to vivek for stirring up in me, the desire to read further on money. This will be my first book in a long line of such books to be read :)

Must read for getting a sense on how money in this world works!

The best thing about Easy Money is it explains right from the start how the current concept of money had evolved and what drives it in the real world. That too in a language a person, even without any knowledge of the financial world, can understand! I suggest it as a must read for anyone who wants to understand how money works in an easy to understand format.

Its a trilogy and I finished the first part. I am really looking ...

Easy Money:Very informative and great read.Worth reading for its well researched content

A very interesting account of evolution of money from 18th century till world war I. It gives a deep insight about how easy money has become complex and thus liable for current complex financial equations. A fascinating detailed analysis of different forms of money. Author has made a complicated subject simple to understand. It is not about investing money ,it is all about understanding money.

Flipkart messed up the delivery of this book

I ordered all three books in this series, only to be given two copies of the second book instead of the one each of the second and third. I made a mistake of not opening the covers till a month later and by then it was too late. I'm now stuck with two copies of the same book.
