Making Money by Terry Pratchett

Making Money by Terry Pratchett satirises our financial system but resists the temptation of cheap shots. It considers its fantastical underpinnings, the greed of its players and the bottom line reality that our lives are dependent on its continued functioning. Add to that the joy of Pratchett's language and his living, breathing, conniving characters and you have a book to delight in, and re-read. Second read through you'll pick up sly humour you missed the first time.
