For those who want a basic intro to economics...
on November 28, 2017
I give this book at most 3 stars. I would not really see this book as a romance because the majority of the book is full of Sam Gordon arguing about his economic perspectives with Laura. Although you can learn a few economic concepts (that keep re occurring throughout the book), I believe that it would truly be more efficient if these concepts were learned in class. But the main reason why I rated this 3 stars instead of 2 is because of the very few parts of the book in which Sam is teaching his class ( it was one of the most memorable part of the book, but there were not that many parts with this). The problem I had with this book was that the whole book was very choppy, unappealing, and a bit dry. I had to read this book for my AP Economics class and although it was not my cup of tea, I do know of a few that really enjoyed the book. If you are unfamiliar with basic economics, I think you will learn a lot from this book. But if you already have a general background and really want something interesting, this may not be for you.
