Economics: A Simple Twist on Normalcy is an approachable introduction to some basic concepts in economics. The author Kersten Kelly focuses on everyday examples of economics at work in order to make the concepts more relatable for the everyday reader. Although the book is neither as dry nor as comprehensive as an economics textbook, I think it has the potential to be a good introduction to an economics course in order to get students more interested.

I just loved this book. It had interesting chapter titles, which always grabs me right away. I loved how the book just flowed and was easy-to-read, which you cannot say about most books on this topic. In addition, the author used quick little stories to emphasis her points and, unlike most economics books, these stories were actually things that made sense to the every day person. This book would be a great book as a supplemental for an economics class. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0578099071, Paperback)

Professional football players, corporate tobacco advertisers, volatile gasoline prices, and the Cold War all share an undetected commonality—each is an intrinsic part of economics. Though not obvious to the naked eye, each entity shares a pattern with the others. This book helps to shed light on these mutual characteristics. It is an extensive compilation of theories interpreted using supportive examples. Economics is an enthralling science that encompasses our actions, thoughts, and emotional rationality every day in the unconscious. This book dissects economic theory into bite-size, entertaining snippets that anyone can understand and apply to their routines. It is a compelling depiction of history, pop culture, and social movements intertwined with relevant economic trends. Economics is part of daily life, and this book challenges readers to question how and why people make decisions by adding a simple twist on normalcy.
