The hardcover version of this book was written in 1974, but it is still relevant today. I have had this book for quite some time, but have only just now read it for a lecture that I am preparing. I found the book to be interesting, well written and surprisingly still highly relevant. It covers all aspects of banking: money and how banks "create" it, the process of making loans, governmental regulations and international banking. Each of the 19 chapters (which are grouped into 7 parts) begins with a brief, somewhat academic discussion, of the topic of the chapter, followed by more personal stories that illustrate the subject being discussed. For instance, checking is discussed, followed by the story of the journey of a check from the recipient, to his bank, to the check clearing facility and finally to the bank upon which the check was drawn. This story is made more interesting by highlighting the people and the various tasks that they perform along the journey of the check. The process of making loans is told from the banker's perspective and how individual bankers approach it. I found that the use of personal stories made a very technical story interesting, while not eliminating the technical information.

As I said at the beginning of this review, the book is very relevant today. Not only has banking (or more accurately problems associated with banking) become a topic for the nightly news, but so has the topic of excessive debt and the specter of looming inflation. When this book was written, the US was going through a period of very high inflation and the causes for this, which are cogently discussed in the final conclusion chapter, are still with us; only more so.

I recommend this book because it gives the reader a good feeling for the complexities of banking and its relevance for all of us. My only reservation is that the book, while still relevant, is over 35 years old and many of the banking regulations that are discussed are no longer in force today. We also have newer problems, such as credit default swaps, that are not discussed. There is a 1980 paperback version which is the same as the hardcover edition and a newer updated edition of this book, but being written in 1998 this updated version is still not up to date and is also out of print. According to the information on the Amazon discussion for this updated version has been entirely re-written, so I do not know if it follows the same format as this one, but being 25 years newer it might be a better choice.
