Don't forbide this book,
This review is from: Business Cycles: A Theoretical Historical and Statistical Analysis of the Capitalist Process (Paperback)
If you don't want to be swallowed with the Mathematics of the General Equilibrium Theory of Walras (and then Arrow and Debreu) read from chapter one to three of Schumpeter's Business Cycles.
I don't recommend the other chapters to reach a better comprehension of Schumpeter... I think it's too much out of context history. Very dificult to understand for engineers, economists and non historian people. Perhaps a best option is the reading of "The Human Web: A Bird's-Eye View of World History" by McNeill. This book has a mountains of unexpected links with Shumpeter's...but, of course, I know It wasn't Schumpeter's Aim to describe economy in a Human History Perspective.
