"The dismal science rendered undismally, even spryly...lively, intelligent, and readily accessible." --Kirkus Reviews "This excellent economics primer is written in plain terms for a college-educated reader; it follows efforts by some academics to seek a readership market beyond the classroom." --Booklist "A practical guide that shows the importance of the subject as a worldview and how it fits into everyday life." --Library Journal "This book should be the poster child for the word tweener. Not quite an introductory text (although that is the category into which the author places it), the book is a mile wide and an inch deep and includes everything but the kitchen sink in terms of level of detail and scope of coverage [...] an interesting, entertaining, and worthwhile contribution that offers a picture of the global economy and how and why it affects daily life." --A. R. Sanderson, University of Chicago, CHOICE
