In My Own Words:
I am an avid reader when time and circumstances allow. I am interested in the world around us, the universe and the system of things. I am not interested in the limited presentation offered by TV but the bigger picture. As for Amazon, it is the best, most economical and broad-ranging market on the internet and the first place anyone seeking a bargain or hard-to-find merchandise should come to...

I like the way this book is divided into 13 chapters that each cover a seperate topic most consisting of the factors of the triple-recession we in the UK and Europe are now undergoing.

But I found the details to be very opaque to the uninformed mind not well-versed in economics or the present economic situation. It assumes you already know enough economics and economic terms to be able to understand the book, so does not try to clarify or explain what the novice might want to know. It reads much like an article or… Read more
