Even if, like me, you dont agree with the core perspective of this author's book I think that having read it you would have to agree that there is no better example of pop economic writing on sale today.
Butler presents a to the point and condensced nuts and bolts analysis of market forces, price mechanisms, specialisation, competition and even market failures or limitations. In doing so he has done a great service to all those who hold free marketeer perspectives. This is as good as a library comprising every book from early economists like Adam Smith to neo-classical economists like Hayek, Mise and Friedmann.
The style and pace of writing are good, the contents and layout of the book are equally accessible and make for an easy entertaining read. Consequently it is pretty persuasive, as a result I would sound a note of caution to the impressionable student or general reader alike as this is without a doubt a partisan read.
