17th Century Heretic
Excellent reading by narrator. Of course this is a famous book. So anyone who reads it probably already interested in finance. Precise, elegant language of author is a pleasure. And his dry observation interesting and amusing. But its alo a bit tedious at times despite being of modest length.
"Banking and institutional history fans may like it"
Bagehot was a ground-breaking writer on things financial and economic. This work was a landmark I believe in the formation of 20th-century concepts of banking, and central banking in particular. Those who enjoyed "The Bankers Who Broke the World" might like this, though this is drier. I liked the cadence of this fine, sober English prose.
