Perhaps someone will write about the 'Nature of Economies', and soon, and I pray that this title will be released for him or her. This book, however, is a ramble of mean observations, couched in an especially irritating format that makes one feel stupid, like an eavesdropper on a pitiable cocktail conversation. To really read this book, one needs only read the Epilogue, 'Hiram was delighted to have Armbruster (sic) relieve him of the book.' The real writing and discovery is in the Notes, some twenty-five pages of them, in which the sense of economy is hinted at, but not at all consummated. Buy the book? Read the Notes. I got my copy at the library.
