“If you want to read about all the experimentation and follies of governments and economists involving the use and abuse of money over the ages, you can do no better than to read Vivek Kaul’s eminently readable Easy Money.”(R. Jagannathan (in the Foreword))
“Asking someone what a thing costs will draw a speedy reply. But now ask them what money is ... Vivek has asked himself precisely this question and this fine book is a culmination of his dogged pursuit of the answer. Join him in his rich intellectual voyage and see for yourself where it leads.”(Dylan Grice)
“Kaul's book is the financial equivalent of the story of the origin of the universe.”(Kevin Maney)
Praise for Easy Money: Evolution of Money from Robinson Crusoe to the First World War
“Forget what you think you know about money and read the true, absorbing tale told by Vivek Kaul in his thorough, but fascinating book, Easy Money. A great read.” (Al Ries)
“Kaul is not an economist and rightly assumes that neither are his readers. Unlike other books that seem to have had been written by one economist for another, this book is for everyone who is ready to try out a riveting cocktail of history and economics. There is no jargon to throw you off balance. Instead, the writing is simple, suave and lucid.”(Daily News and Analysis (DNA))
An eminently readable take on the use and abuse of money by Vivek Kaul.(Business Line)
A very interesting read...The second book in trilogy is strongly recommended. If one wants to understand the present, one must read the historical account of the evolution of money.(The Hindu)
Kaul’s work, though elaborate, gives readers a clear understanding of the events that shaped the current financial world.(DNA Mumbai)

Apart from being an amazingly written book, I think everyone should read it to understand what we use daily and work for - money. It also teaches us the mistakes of the past, and helps us understand how current policy actions may affect us in future.
The book might have few boring patches but it is nothing much to complain about. The "dollar pricing of oil", "dollar as global currency" and "dumping of dollars in developing country(which is finding its way back to US again :O)" are few shocking revelation to me that the world economy faces now. Any enthusiast should purchase the complete series, its an investment :)
