I just finished reading Mr. Beitler's book and found it to be a must have for anyone wanting to understand the philosophies that have lead to the ever increasing size of government, and the prevailing socialist attitudes in America today. I especially enjoyed chapter six " A Brief History of Economics" in which he exposes the flawed logic that has brought the US economy to the brink of complete collapse.

I have found this book to be an invaluable resource that I keep nearby at all times for an easily understandable explanation of different economic policies and ideologies. The brief histories of individuals like Karl Marx and Milton Friedman make this book more than well worth the money. I highly recommend it!

This is I think the definitive modern day manifesto of the Libertarian movement. Many books provide economic models, historical and practical justifications for Libertarian policy, but few provide such a clear and concise moral justification.

He follows the Objectivist model, which may come across to some as too abstract but in reality is like going to philisophical rehab!

In this book, Dr. Beitler gives one of the most concise run downs on all things Libertarian. In his work you will get a quick and well reasoned explanation of people and principles forming the landscape of free market economics. Many of these you may not have heard of, but you should have. A great and quick path to enlightenment.

I have been reading Michael Beitler's articles on campaignforliberty[...]and decided to buy his book. I wasn't disappointed. Dr. Beitler has provided a solid groundwork for rational thinking on economics and philosophy and the effects of collectivism versus individualism. I particularly like his insights into the people who have shaped our thinking throughout history; from Plato versus Aristotle to Kant & Marx versus Mises & Rand; and many others. This is a wealth of information in a very easy to read and comprehend format. Great job!
