Dare I say, fun to read, 21 Jan 2003
A well-reasoned and insightful introduction to economics. Lined with analogies and real-world examples, Naked Economics is accessible to anyone considering picking up the book--not just econ majors. Wheelan displays a casual tone tempered by intimate knowledge of recent examples of economics at work in society. As the back cover pronounces, the book is without graphs, curves or equations, which can be a plus or minus depending on what you are after. But for those interested in learning more about economics in a straightforward and enjoyable read, Naked Economics fits the bill perfectly.
