Everyone that I know who has read the book has praised it.
I have a bit of background in basic economics and read this book hoping to learn more about the great economic thinkers, their theories, and economic history.
Great names such as John Kenneth Galbraith and Milton Friedman are not equated by Heilbroner to the above mentioned airheads such as Charles Fourier.
Excellent primer on economic philosophy throughout the centuries. Easy readPublished 11 days ago by bob kelly

This is an eminently readable, fascinating book about the world's leading economists...sounds dull as hell, but I thought it superb!Published 1 month ago by Lewis S. Gossette
Very insightful. My only complaint is that the version of the book that was sent to me was not the one in the cover photo listed. It was an older and much uglier version.Published 2 months ago by Hazel Howard
Definitely enjoyed finishing this book (would have said reading it but it was a difficult read at times). Read morePublished 2 months ago by Having Things
Too little attention to Austrian School economists, but still a fascinating read! Would like to see more on Hayek, Mises, etc.Published 2 months ago by PW
