Ever made a fast buck? How about traded cowrie shells for a bride or paid for gum with a $10,000 bill? This entertaining and information-packed miscellany explains our fascination with money and how it has shaped our world. Vintage photographs and artwork illustrate surprising facts, lists, and trivia about forgotten financial catastrophes and famous bank robbers, the history of bankruptcy and ancient money gods, wacky cash-related slang and get-rich-quick schemes for the ages. Witty and comprehensive, Money explores the one subject that really makes the world go round.
Sandra Choron is a writer, editor, literary agent, book packager, and designer. Harry Choron is a graphic designer. Together, they are the authors of numerous books, including Planet Dog, Planet Cat, and The Book of Lists for Teens. They live in Haworth, New Jersey.
