Just thought I would let my friends know what I am currently reading. I am about half way through this enchanting book. As of yet there has been no romance or comedy but I am staying optimistic. I am also reading two books on Negotiations (preparing for my MBA class that I teach this Spring). I wont get to read anything fun until Spring Break.

Shelves: economics, law
Solid introduction to the field of law and economics. Anyone can read this. It presupposes virtually no knowledge on economics or law -- a brief synopsis of basic microeconomics and the common law system is presented at the outset. Sure, it's a textbook, but it's a great one -- one of the few I actually plan to keep (although that may be because I have it conveniently saved in PDF form on my hard drive).

I really did not like it while I was reading but it forever changed the way that I looked at pretty much everything. Game theory infected me via this book.
