it was amazing

Very readable. The book is a study of economics from many perspectives.
I have bought more than one copy. I gave a copy to my daughter.

I have re-read parts of the book. The author is critical of our current method of agriculture production.

There is a chapter on problems in life. Math problems are convergent and they are easy compared to divergent problems. Divergent problems include, among others, decisions on who to fire in the workplace or what people to cut ties with. This explains why a businessman does crossword puzzles to relax.
