Your guide to navigating the world of money

It makes the world go round, but money can truly be an enigma. How Money Works demystifies processes and answers the hundreds of financial questions we all have.

Money facilitates the billions of transactions that take place every day across the globe. How Money Works tells you how this is possible. It explains economic theories, how governments raise and control money, what goes on in the stock exchange, how analysts predict where shares are heading, and many other issues. It busts jargon, explaining terms such as quantitative easing, cash flow, bonds, superannuation, and the open market.

Our forefathers may have used simple bartering to exchange goods and services, but today we depend on complicated financial instruments for pensions, life assurance, mortgages, and more. How Money Works explains how these work as well as how to avoid on-line fraud and where to invest.

With information on the latest forms of funding and currencies such Bitcoin, this comprehensive book will fast track you to financial literacy and getting the most from your hard-won cash.

Interesting Enough Catch-All

I made it through the entire book while on daily dog walks. It is interesting enough, but nothing truly enlightening. It is quite a catch-all and a kitchen sink for money. I tend to like books on how things work and some documentaries, and this was informative enough.

However, it is a little repetitive at times as the same content is covered at several different times, possibly in different ways and contexts, but feels like I'm hearing the same thing sometimes. And it is a bit UK-centric, but is relatable enough, and does eventually get around to some US-specific aspects too.

If you want to hear a lot of money terms explained, then this book covers it :) . If you want deep, interesting stories and detailed examples, then probably not. I liked it enough to make it the entire way, and don't regret buying.
