6 out of 10

Some really interesting bits but overall it went on a bit long for me and I got bored.

Think my favourite story was how the phrase "Everyone pools in xxx amount..." got started - with a bunch of Frenchmen throwing rocks at chickens!

I quite like the story behind "The buck stops here" as well.
