You deserve this beautifully-illustrated exploration of the itch for riches from King Midas to software emperor Bill Gates. How rich was Croesus, anyway? And who should be credited with the 'most marbles' (in today's dollars): John D Rockefeller, Warren Buffet or Elizabeth II? Author Drew Fetherston, a two-time Pulitzer finalist, is as amusing as he is astute. He looks at both the hopes and bottom lines of magnificent dreamers, schemers and winners, giving readers the low down on treasure hunts from the South Sea Bubble to the money games people play today. In brief bits, he consults the gods of Fortune, pops into literature and goes to the movies (remember Greed or Wall Street?) to find out what we really think about wealth. He also visits spectacular swindles. And he looks in on the super rich spending their money: their impulse purchases -- yachts and art masterpieces. This book showcases the theme-related art of masters: Bosch, El Greco, Dossi -- to name a few. No wonder the media finds this book so worth having. GREED Its Rewards is a book you want to own. And it makes a great gift for the investors, money-handlers and go-ahead types in your life. So please, treat yourself and friends to this well-priced, little treasure.<
