His thorough knowledge of financial affairs gives his observations a great degree of authenticity. But the joy of reading this book comes from his delightful sense of humor.

Author information

"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.
