5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most important books ever written, 16 Feb 2009
This is one of the finest and most important books ever written and yet the book is not widely known.
The author is the most important figure in the 'Austrian School' of economics but the book is about much more than economics, its about life and the motivating factors that drive humans in their interactions. The author hardly uses any numbers or charts, as normal in economic texts, but conveys the essence of the economics through a masterful use of simple language.
The book conveys deep psychological and sociological insights and combines this with a deep understanding of philosophy and politics to explain how and why humans act.
Buy this book and expand your understanding.
