it was ok
Read in March, 2009

I was surprised at all of the extremely positive reviews of this book. While I would say it is a good (more interesting than normal) basic economics book, I wouldn't say it is much more than that. If you haven't taken a beginning economics class this is a good introduction to the subject, if you have you might be a bit bored.

I will admit there were a few interesting examples; including the Starbucks, used cars, and supermarket ones, I wish I would have invested a little bit less of my own scarcity (time) to read just those sections and skip the rest.
