Reviews of Vivek Kaul’s Trilogy – “Easy Money”
This is, hence, a unique combination of academic rigour and journalistic panache to deliver excellent treatises on a complex subject like money and finance. Putting it in three volumes is pragmatic, as there is no economy in explanation and narration. This set of books will be enjoyed by all readers irrespective of their knowledge of the subject.
“Kaul has used excellent research, bolstered by his journalistic approach, to gather and sew together information and data seamlessly into the books.”
