Very Informative but rather informal

If you are looking for a formal book on economics that uses technical language then this is not the book for you. This accomplishes 3 tasks: introduces basic economic concepts in extremely unique ways using real world examples. Relates how the principles of economics work in the absence of citrus parabus, and provides ample entertainment and plenty of intriguing facts on the world. Beware though, the author definitely carries his opinions. Do not mistake this book for an unbiased and well rounded summary of the field. That being said, you can learn a lot from this book.
