This book explains what money really is and how we started using it (can you imagine buying a rug by trading a camel for it?). It monetizes everything from your breakfast to making movies, and breaks down the numbers in an approachable way. Cool graphics show the components of a cell phone and the process of making a shoe. It also answers tricky questions like why a hamburger costs more than the ingredients do and how a sale in a clothing store works. This is sure to be a hit for those interested in how things work and those who haven't found that inspiring math topic yet!
