Great Book to know some economics

This is great book for you to understand some economics. Another good book is Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell.

The voice of Gayle Hendrix is really sweet! Worth your Money.

Half good, half a tad dull

This is a good intro to economics. The beginning of the book was quite interesting and engaging but towards the end a little less so. I enjoyed the comparison of the life and opportunities of a girl in the West and a girl in the rural undeveloped world. But for some reason the book is not as engaging in the second half of the book.
