    Review quote
    " Before regulators throw block trades, bond swaps, bridge financing, butterfly spreads and Black-Scholes out with the bathwater, they should find time to read Niall Ferguson's "The Ascent of Money"." -"The Wall Street Journal" "[An] excellent, just in time guide to the history of finance and financial crisis." -"The Washington Post" " Shrewdly anticipates many aspects of the current financial crisis, which has toppled banks, precipitated gigantic government bailouts and upended global markets." -Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
