really liked it

Another one of those feel-good economics books that destroys your faith in democracy. It completely affirmed my love for economic analysis.

This book blew me away with the way it approached both the field and specific issues of democracy. It's one of only a few books (that I've seen) that asks why economics, as a discipline, seems to disdain psychology.

I can't wait to see what else comes out of public choice theory and game theory because of this book.
