I came across this book because I have just recently became interested in the stocks, bonds, etc. I am tired of spending my money on stuff I dont really need and being broke in the end of the day. I wanted to understand how money really works.

I typed economics in the search and half way down the page seen this book. The title caught my eye. Hey this author promises it wont be boring.. coo!

It only took me a day and a half to read between work and sleep because it hooks you. Every subject that is a little bit confusing such as world currencies is backed by full examples that put things into perspective.

The length is just right and the price is perfect. I will be reading this book again to reinforce everything its that good.

Thank you Dale Franks for enriching my life with this great title.

Slackernomics is one of the best books on economics I have ever read; it's easy to read and understand; it's also well written. I recommend it to anyone who wants to understand how economic systems function.

Should be required reading for everyone. Might make sense to have Congress read it as well. Enjoyed the information presented.

This book is just a little bit dated because it was written before the most recent economic downturn. But it remains a good first book on economics for people who do not know much about the subject. Franks covers all the major items in macroeconomics. Monetary policy, fiscal policy, the various schools of economic thought, and even a little bit of history.

Furthermore he does this in a humorous style, no boring graphs and formulas, instead a dry sense of humor.

Recommended.
