3.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable and easily understood overview 13 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A reasonable overview, but the author seems to have written this to put across his own view of economics, rather than this being written from a neutral, factual point of view.

Describes the things that other economics books assume you know already. So is good for starting from the ground up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good till it froze on my kindle 19 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got to the last page then I got an error. Took ages to get it off my device . Not sure if this was a content fault or a Kindle Touch bug, Now returned for refund. Very good till the bug appreared. Maybe I should get the real book? But I don't think there is one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great common sense introduction 2 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Michael Tolson's booklet is a very readable introduction to what can be a rather daunting subject. The historical references and everyday examples make it very easy to relate to the concepts involved. Clearly this is not a detailed analysis but has spurred me to look now for more in depth books.

Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting overview 3 April 2013
By Ed Rowe
Format:Kindle Edition
Good summary of basic economic theory, slightly jarring now and again with a moralistic aside about the venality of man. Very good on simplifying understanding of money supply. Nice and concise too.
