High up on Amazon's bestseller list is the reprint of a once obscure book about the German hyperinflation. It took 20 German marks to buy 1 pound in 1914, it took 320 billion by 1923. "When Money Dies" is a detailed and disturbing account of that time.

    On the whole, when a book on a financial subject hits the bestseller list it's a good idea to take the opposite side of the trade. Remember Dow 36,000?
