This book is an excellent reference source for anyone interested in a wide spectrum of economic principles and history. This is not a book I would suggest reading through, but instead using it as a sort of glossary for economics. The content is dense, but thorough. The book is also full of color and graphics, which in some cases can be busy, but for the most part work to catch the readers' eyes. This would be great to have in a library of a financial literacy class -- probably from middle school up to high school. ( )

[a:Niall Kishtainy|6849133|Niall Kishtainy|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png] was a tutor of mine at the LSE and his tutorials were always enjoyable, informative, and challenging. This book has those same qualities.

An introduction to economics for the general reader, this book sets the subject out chronologically so that you get a potted history of the discipline as well as a guide to its key concepts. Also, the choice of subjects ranges rather wider than many books of its type so you get coverage of relatively obscure but important concepts such as the Diamond-Dybvig model. This might result in coverage which is a little unsatisfying for the expert reader, but it isn't really directed at them. For the layman, this book will make you sound more knowledgeable than most others of its type. ( )
