This is a very comprehensive and thorough book on a very complex and nuanced subject. I wasn't sure if I wanted to "get in the game," but if you have any money, your're already in a currency, and if you want to protect yourself, this book is an excellent place to start.
Pretty clear and informative,it's left me a clear perspective.
