This is a great learning tool for basic economics. However anyone can Google and download a PDF of the entire book for free. No sense paying good money for it.

If you have no appreciation for the benefit that free markets have on society and you want to stay ignorant - I do not recommend this book.

With the simple example of the pencil you can open your mind to see from where all the costs are coming from even in a simple product such as a pencil. Great book!

It's actually an essay. An easy read explaining a deep economic problem. Delightful. And a classic used by economy professors.

When I read this I was reminded about how inter-related the system is to get something as simply as a pencil into your hands. It all happens without government intervention and unintended consequences. I believe the message of this piece is:"let the system work".
