This is a very good source of information which can either be read cover-to-cover or as a reference work. The sections are categorized nicely. It's not for those who are already versed in economic theory, but it you want to really understand the meaning *and context* of "what they're talking about in the news" this is as good a reference as you'll find. The book avoids ideological leanings very effectively.
Indeed, if only this were required reading for high school students...

Format: Paperback
This book uses an excellent format of seven chapters consisting of macro/microeconomic concepts. These are further divided into 101 numbered timely topics such as "Deflation" and "Derivatives". The author starts with chapter one by defining terms variously scattered throughout the book. I think he should have instead placed the terms in a sidebar box in context to where they're applicable. My chief criticism of the book is that it's not really easy to understand, and most people looking for a book like this probably expect the author to assume no prior understanding of anything on the part of the reader. He starts each topic with a simple interesting starter commentary but quickly launches into jargon which is furthered explained by more jargon or terms not adequately explained previously. This book wouldn't be suitable for someone not already having a background in economics.
