The second edition of the fun and fascinating guide to the main ideas of the Austrian School of economics, written in sparkling prose especially for the non-economist. Gene Callahan shows that good economics isn't about government planning or ...
statistical models. It's about human beings and the choices they make in the real world.
This may be the most important book of its kind since Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson. Though written for the beginner, it has been justly praised by scholars too, including Israel Kirzner, Walter Block, and Peter Boettke.

Lucid on Austrian theory of value and business cycle. The second half of the book is a biased, indulgent hard-selling of 'free market' cliche. The chapter on deregulation of product safety is RIDICULOUS.
