I read Money by Jacob Goldstein on


Extremely digestible, heavily summarized. A totally decent introduction to “money as a concept.” Follows a lot of bestseller-history-of-a-thing formulas, like brief anecdotes from history with character sketches, lurching from one century to another.

It’s pretty well-researched and decently well-written. It’s also clearly written so that you could finish it on a transatlantic flight.
