This book was recommended to me and I am so thankful. Lords of Finance by Liaquat Ahamed is highly informative, relative to today's economy and very entertaining.

This is not the topic of the book, but in the book, a wife killed a man who had libeled her husband in France and the jury found her only a victim of passion so she was set free. My criticism is that the author began the story and it seemed he dropped it so I did my own research and only later in the book did the author finally say she was not held culpable.

The story of how the first world war was started was known to me yet this book opens up new material. This book makes it clearer why the war started and tells a story behind that story. i am not finished but am sure appreciative of the poster that recommended the book.
