As someone with a degree in Economics who hasn't worked in the field as directly as Greg Ip, I found this book to be a great review of topics I had long forgotten about. Please don't confuse this with a textbook or a deep dive into any topic. It is to Economics what a cross-country flight is to geography. A lot of overview. A lot of great scenery. You will likely find a topic or two you want to delve in to deeper. Oh, and it takes about as long to read.
