This review is from: The Making of Modern Economics: The Lives and Ideas of the Great Thinkers (Paperback)
I simply loved this book. Great story line. It's the perfect start for the layman interested in getting a handle on the various schools of economic theory. Without a doubt the most entertaining book on economics I've read. It's hard to put down.
I think the only way you can hate this book is if you are a closet Marxist or are still clinging to Keynesism. If you are of the Keynes mind set, you owe it to yourself to read it anyway. The author traces the changes in philosophy of former leading Keynes supporters to make a strong case that the philosophy is flawed.
Lots of pictures, and fascinating profiles. Juicy stuff.
