KIRKUS REVIEW

Maybe so, but not in an altogether articulate way, as Wagner collects points of view on the subject from the likes of L.A. diamond merchants, motel housekeepers, hookers, and Las Vegas blackjack dealers. Art Linkletter on the subject: ""Money is just a scorecard for me. . . when I make a big deal it's because it's an interesting situation. And because I'm curious. People who make fortunes are all curious."" Some are peculiar, too, like Marvin Schwartz, the 49-year-old movie producer who gave his up to convert to Buddhism and the simple life (in friends' borrowed apartments). No particular ideology in evidence here, just everybody's ideas tossed in together--and then neatly tied in a bundle.
