Cowen and Tabarrok guide you through economic lessons with a helping hand and a dash of humor. While it can get a little simplistic, I appreciate how they're trying to make it accesible for newbies. Though I normally resell my books the day after the final exam, this one's earned a place on my (very small) bookshelf.
