For your reading pleasure...

I do a little reading here and there through out the year, so I'll be recommending books accordingly on my blog. For the most part, they don't seem to be of the mainstream sort. But none the less, they are good books, and are closely related to money and finance. Todays book is called "The House of Morgan." It's of course excellently written by one of my favorite authors Ron Chernow. It chronicles the great history of the Morgan empire. From a small bank started in England, to it's peak when it was lending money to the government to get it out of trouble in the late 19th century, to the companies it's become today...well, at least 1990 when the book was written. It's now JP Morgan Chase (the bank) and the investment company (Morgan Stanley.) It's one of the worlds largest banks with 1.2 trillion dollars in assests! If you're into biography, history, banking and financing, this one's for you.
