The other two reviewers unfortunately do not understand the context of Adam Smith's great work. Because, as the author points out, The Wealth of Nations is far too often only understood through the ideological perversion of its original intention and meaning, by both sides. Therefore , understanding the context of the times and intellectual climate is the only way to genuinely understand the work.
I only gave it three stars because I feel the topic deserves much greater depth and eventhough the perspective was right, this work can only be appreciated with several other companion works on the Enlightenment and classical economics.

This is not the Adam Smith book but simply someone else's weak interpretation. In my opinion it is misrepresented and I wasted two credits on this and part two. To make things worse I also got soaked a credit for "Democracy In America". Oh well, live and learn. I'd of given it zero stars if I could have.

This is the only book you need to read about economics, everything else is just gravy. I read this book thirty years ago and found it heavy going, however this interpretation puts it into context and being speech based gives it an extra dimension for understanding. Reading both parts will be the most productive five hours you will ever spend and all for just over a tenner.
