"'It is a rich harvest, for nothing, except sexual love, has prompted such an outpouring of words.'
Robert Skidelsky, London Evening Standard"

"'I enjoyed this book. Mr Jackson is no blockhead.'
Martin Wolf, Financial Times"
"'deftly and diligently edited by Kevin Jackson, a very modern anthologist well aware of the possibilities of the segue and the cross-fade.'
David Kynaston, Sunday Telegraph"
"'Kevin Jackson has spent time collecting a mint of ideas from some great and not so great thinkers.'
The Independent on Sunday"
"'absorbing and entertaining anthology ...The book is handsomely produced and, to use what must surely be the proper criterion in the circumstances, it represents, at about 1.5p per entry, very good value.'
Kit McMahon, The Observer"
"'a heroic labour which I cannot praise too highly'
London Review of Books"
"'an entertaining round-up of writing on the filthy stuff'
Robert Yates, The Guardian"
"'his research led to the discovery of considrable literary riches ... The book is a well organised assembly of passages, poems, pictures and imagery about money by some of the greatest writers with something to say about money.'
NBWilf Altman, The European"
"'full of good quotes and writings on money'
"The Oxford Book of Money fairly swings with novelists and poets, wits and politicians, economists and philosophers, all brilliantly animated by their common theme." - Lucy Naylor, Country Living, May 1995
"While it could well be of great interest to businessmen, lots of other people could also find it absolutely fascinating ... this is an anthology of writings about money ... The editor is to be congratulated on the compilation and arrangement of hundreds of quotations ... It must have been a prodigious task, involving a vast amount of reading and research. The result was well worth the effort, and has provided readers with a positive feast of financial fare." - Reference Reviews
"Staggeringly eclectic, endlessly informative ... an exhilarating vapour of resentment and cupidity steams off every page." - Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian
"Sublime, brainy and illuminating anthology on a subject dear to absolutely everyone's hearts. The ideal stocking-filler for the greed-head of your choice." - Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian
