An important update, 25 Nov. 2009
If anyone ever 'got' economics it was certainly Keynes, and if anyone 'gets' Keynes it is Skidelsky. Description of The Global Economic Crisis is a bit old-hat by now, so the start of the book drags very, very slightly, but as the critique develops and moves into proper exploration of 'The Master's' ideas in the post-crisis arena - with a good bit of banker-bashing too boot - the book comes into its own.
Not too technical, as has been suggested elsewhere. Indeed, Skidelsky is no mathematician, which is to the great benefit of the readability of his latest work.
