Moist Von Lipwig...is my favorite. I made the slight mistake of reading this one before Going Postal, which is better but not by too much.

A classic Discoworld novel. Moist von Lipwig shows us the absurd world of finance and how trust influences world or cities life. After the financial crisis of the past years it's a book you want to laugh and cry about at the same time..

Good read for some fun insight into banking. I adore all of Terry Pratchett's books for adults/teens- fun, snarky satire!
