RELEASING APRIL 2021

Money is one of the most important languages on the planet. In this book, Linda Davies helps people understand and speak it better.

Former investment banker, Oxford-educated economist and writer, Linda Davies, sets out the ten crucial things we all need to know. From cowries to cryptos, gold to the strange alchemy of new money, Tulip Mania to the sub-prime crisis, rampant risk-taking to the reckless caution that predisposes women to go broke slowly, through a financial menagerie of black swans, bulls and bears, via the evils of payday loans and the magic of compound interest, Davies takes us on a fascinating journey that is illuminating, shocking and revelatory.

BOOK DEBUT from one of the UK’s leading portrait painters.

Artist and former corporate lawyer Nick Bashall’s satirical cartoons capture the emotions, the frenzy and the folly of finance.

Together, they will change the way you see, use and master money and help secure your and your children’s financial future.

Short chapters with fascinating bite-sized sub-headings make this book an attention-grabbing and engaging read. This book is for everyone, from sharp-suited traders to 70-year-old grandparents, to older teenage children.
