‘Fascinating Insights Into Money’ Score: 5/5 I found this fascinating. It was written before cryptocurrency gained much traction, so there’s no mention of bitcoin here, but instead there are fascinating glimpses into how small groups or regions have ‘created’ their own money and use it instead of the regular government-issued currency to keep money flowing within that particular region. The first exam…

‘Oblique, Obscure And Obtuse’ Score: 3/5 Iain M. Banks science fiction books put you right in the middle of a huge world with little up-front explanation of what was going on, and the journey through the book gradually revealed the bits of the world mentioned at the beginning.

‘Quick, Trite, Occasionally Useful’ Score: 3/5 This was a 99p 'Quick Read' so it’s not the full book. It did have some good bits, some useful thoughts, but it could also be a bit tiresome, and it did have some dodgy moments. Maybe they're less dodgy in the complete edition...
