The Cash Nexus - Money and Power in Modern World 1700-2000 by Niall Ferguson

Have you got a friend who is interesting and intelligent, and is well worth listening to on a subject on which he is very knowledgeable? But who ruins it all by behaving as if he is even more interesting and intelligent than he really is, and being pompous and pouting about it as well. I imagine that Niall Ferguson is such a guy. This is certainly such a book.
