This book was quite possibly the most original sci-fi story I’ve ever seen while being a more thorough lesson in economics and business than 6 years of business school. The otherworldly story has a more real-world example of how money and trade works than any textbook I’ve ever encountered. This should be a must-read for anyone who enjoys sci-fi, finance, or intelligent comedy. My only regret about this book is that Costikyan hasn’t written more in its vein.
