Heavy Reserve Alert: ‘Ascent of Money’

The Ascent of Money by Niall Ferguson has been reviewed widely, most recently in yesterday’s NYT (“it shrewdly anticipates many aspects of the current financial crisis”). It is also moving up bestseller lists (currently at #19 on the NYT Hardcover Non-fiction list, from #33 last week) and is at #41 on Amazon.

Libraries show modest holdings, with heavy holds (over 12 to 1 in one case). It is available in audio; most libraries have not ordered it in that format.
