Hollywood star George Raft once told his bank manager, Part of the $10 million I spent on gambling, part on booze and part on women. The rest I spent foolishly. It's Only Money combines cash, history and a wealth of incredible facts to reveal just how much the value of things in life can soon change. From the serious to the ridiculous, the dollar takes on a life of its own in this witty trip through the vaults of the most incredible financial deals ever. It's Only Money shows how fortunes are won and lost, why kids are a bad investment, and the truth about buying happiness. As Woody Allen said: Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.
