The Enlightened Economist

Description
An archive of the books featured on The Enlightened Economist, a reading blog run by the British writer and economist, Diane Coyle. The blog has been going since 2009, but only recently discovered by myself. However, it touches upon topics of relevance to all, and the type of non-fiction I like to read, but often struggle to find good reviews on.
