Format: Paperback
Steven Pressman's book is the best place for anyone to start reading about economics. What you get here is neither the one-sided, smug, neoclassical viewpoint that most books on economics take nor one full of revolutionary fervour. Instead, this short book moves chronologically through the economic landscape, pausing to highlight the important economic thinkers, their lives and thoughts, and explaining both their lasting ideas and forgotten ones.

I've been collecting economics books over the last several years and Pressman's book (the very last one I bought) has moved to the top of my favorite's list. This is an ideal book for a beginner. Pressman has a gift for distilling the difficult down to the simple. If you're looking for a first book on the history of economic thought, this is an ideal place to start.

This was a great supplement to my textbook and other articles I had to read for a class on The History of Economic Doctrine. In this book, all in one place I got a great overview of many authors which I am sure I will reference again in the future. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to understand the landscape of economic thinkers which leads to how we tend to think today.

I purchased this book to help with a research project I am planning to assign to high school seniors. It is very helpful by giving a snapshot view of each economist's theory.
