"Someone can get a better grip on how an economy works by reading about adventures as a server in a waffle house than they can get by reading the ten most respected economic journals in the world. Few books have made me laugh the way yours did, and it taught me a good deal about other things as well." --Steven Kates, Former Chief Economist for Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Royal Melboune Institute of Technology (RMIT) University
"An economic thinker I can understand...I found Adams' explanations to provide brief and understandable interpretation of what I more intuitively believed. His little teaching moments are clear and concise, and let him get back to the waffle house anecdotes, and his relationships with his ex-con co-workers. I really enjoyed it." --James G. Martin, Governor of North Carolina (1985-1993)

Although he earned the Chartered Financial Analyst designation and an MBA, most of his financial knowledge has been gleaned from his recent foray into foodservice and the writings of forgotten 19th-century economists. He prefers his eggs over easy and his hashbrowns all the way.
