Thought provoking, informative, and well written
on October 22, 2011
This is, overall, an excellent book and well worth reading. A lot of ideas and information are included, drawn from good quality sources, as well as the authors' own work. Along the way, there's a lot to take in but the writing is clear.
In places it is witty but this (and the pictures of the authors juggling on the inside flap) shouldn't be taken as an indication that the book is a lightweight, or just an entertaining tour through popular economics or science. The issues are big ones and the authors suggest some solutions, at least in principle, and sometimes at a practical level.
