In many ways this book is similar to The Death of Economics. The main reason for buying it is that it is far easier to read. If you have any interest in economics or the social sciences you need at least one of these books.
Paul Ormerod's Death of Economics is a must for anyone interested in economics or social science. Not only does it explain why economists often appear to get it wrong it also provides a vision of how economics may look in future. Don't let the title fool you - the game has only just begun!
