An epic saga that recounts the turbulent history of money. The Pursuit of Wealth is a fascinating 5,000 year journey through the evolution of money and investing. From risk versus return in Mesopotamia through today's rough-and-tumble, high-stakes stock markets, this behind-the-scenes tale will intrigue both financial historians and history-minded investors alike.

Barron's columnist Robert Sobel weaves a richly textured tale of risk and the never ending quest for wealth since the dawn of man. The Pursuit of Wealth - filled with gripping stories, tales of war, and legacies of great fortunes won and lost - is much more than simply a compelling read; it provides valuable insights that can be applied to today's turbulent times.
