Ouch! — a new book recommended by one of my academic colleagues as widely accessible and very engaging. I understand it “puts most of the books on the crisis churned out by journalists and professionals to shame.”
From the jacket:
It’s time to wake up or get wiped out.
We live in a world dominated by a system that most of us aren’t aware of, never mind understand. When it comes to money and how it really works, most of us are too busy, too bored or too bewildered to think about it, despite being at the sharp end of the consequences. We simply don’t recognise the game that is being played out in front of us. Well check your pockets; you’re in for a nasty shock.
OUCH! is your entertaining answer to financial fear, ignorance or confusion. Quintessentially irreverent but with a deadly serious message – ultimately it tells you how to protect your hard earned cash and save yourself from financial meltdown.
You can’t afford to ignore it.
And I look forward to reading it…
