“Mokyr’s book is a splendid achievement.”--Edward Glaeser, The New Republic

(Edward Glaeser

Wall Street Journal

(Trevor Butterworth
The Wall Street Journal 2010-07-30)

"This book is beautifully executed from beginning to end. . . . This study of British industrialization is certain to be a classic text for generations to come."—Margaret Schabas,
