This is an articulate and stimulating text, written in plain english.
It charts the chronology of the major contributions, and contributors, to the development of economic thought from Aristotle's minor observations on economic life to the pioneers of Econometrics in the late twentieth century.
This is a 'page-turner' and the outstanding feature of the text is the accessibility and readability of the material - full credit to the author.
In summary, he is the 'Simon Schama' or 'Brian Cox' of his academic discipline and this will make a perfect Christmas gift in 7 months time.
