Synopsis: The importance of money in our lives is readily apparent to everyone--rich, poor, and in between. However grudgingly, most of us accept the expression "Money makes the world go round" as a universal truth. We are all aware of the power of money--how it influences our moods, compels us to take risks, and serves as the yardstick of success in societies around the world. Yet because we take the daily reality of money so completely for granted, we seldom question how and why it has come to play such a central role in our lives.
In Coined: The Rich Life of Money And How Its History Has Shaped Us, author Kabir Sehgal casts aside our workaday assumptions about money and takes the reader on a global quest to uncover a deeper understanding of the relationship between money and humankind. More than a mere history of its subject, Coined probes the conceptual origins and evolution of money by examining it through the multiple lenses of disciplines as varied as biology, psychology, anthropology, and theology. Coined is not only a profoundly informative discussion of the concept of money, but it is also an endlessly fascinating and entertaining take on the nature of humanity and the inner workings of the mind.
[Read by Kevin Stillwell]
Money. We obsess about it in a material sense, but we don't know much about it on a deeper level. We know it makes the world go round, but do we really understand how? It's what we want, but why? Coined is a colorful take on the history of money and its meaning in our lives.
Kabir Sehgal's voice and vision are unique products of his sophisticated grasp of the subject he is both a keen observer of and a high-stakes player in the global economic continuum. Sehgal is an approachable, authoritative guide to an unprecedented interdisciplinary safari, in which readers will learn how money and our intrinsic compulsion to value and exchange is fundamental to our survival. Exploring topics like the ancient Vedic notion of debt, monkeys who understand fruit juice as currency, the neuroscience of gambling, money in art, and many more ideas, Coined mixes stories from the front lines of global currency exchange with extensive, thoughtful research. With often surprising and thought-provoking anecdotes and research, Coined presents an entertaining, multidimensional portrait of currency through the ages.
