Superb, 8 Dec. 2012
This is, quite simply, an outstanding book.
Fascinating ideas are explained clearly and there are interesting biographies of a wide range of original thinkers.
As a teacher of Economics I have sampled lots of 'all encompassing' or 'introductory' Economics books which frequently offer unsatisfactory and rather dumbed down information.
The Economics Book, however, makes complex theories accessible - which is a rather different thing!
In my opinion this book is a must for every student, whether at GCSE, A-level or degree.
It is also ideal for the armchair enthusiast who may especially enjoy the chapters on Game Theory.
