About Adam Smith

"The Money Game, written by one who signs himself 'Adam Smith' (and who some believe is Harvard-and-Oxford-trained George J. W. Goodman), is a modern-day classic. Like many modern paintings, the book looks simple. But as W. Somerset Maugham said about an unforgettable Mondrian abstraction: 'It looks as though you had only to take a ruler, a tube of black paint and a tube of red, and you could do the thing yourself. Try!' "--Professor Paul A. Samuelson, First American Nobel Prize Winner in Economics. "Everyone who is anyone in U.S. investment already knows about 'Adam Smith, ' " wrote "Newsweek." 'Adam Smith' is also the author of Supermoney and Powers of Mind.show more
