… and how to make it
Share this book
Making enough money to get a start in life is now a real problem for most young people. The cost of houses in the UK has risen so sharply in recent years that it is one of the country’s major problems, and many people are weighed down by debt before they even start. Knowing about money – its history, how it works, how people have made it in the past – can offer some practical and useful inspiration to tackle this challenge. In this entertaining and wide-ranging book, Peter Pugh explores the whole notion of money. There is advice from successful business people such as John Timpson, and also examples of entrepreneurs such as James Dyson and Anita Roddick, and creative artists such as J.K. Rowling, who started with very little but who have built enormously successful businesses.
Peter Pugh is a
businessperson and company historian who has written more than 50 company
histories on businesses from Rolls-Royce to Iceland. He is also the author of Introducing Thatcherism and Introducing Keynes, and lives by the sea
in north Norfolk, and in Cambridge.
