    Yes....You are right !
    I wondered if by any chance you read Niall's book "The Ascent of Money"?
    It may be a good reading and I may order it after Christmas break.

    I read it as well, but found his 6 part TV series very well done also.

    That said if you have read the book there is no need to watch the TV series and via versa.

    The same goes for his Civilisation book and TV series.

    I have subscribed to both TED talks and Niall fergusson - both are great resources - and would highly encourage anyone reading this to do so also.
