"This book is very good - ideal as an easy to read introduction to Hayek's ideas and influence for somebody who has heard of him but hasn't actually engaged with him before. The style, as always with Eamonn, is very clear and straightforward. I like the structure as well, which has a natural flow of subject matter and argument to it."
--Dr Stephen Davies, Education Director, Institute of Economic Affairs
