This book summarizes each economic indicator very succinctly. It's a good quick reference. Parts of the book read like an advertisement for the Wall Street Journal, perhaps not surprising for a book published the WSJ. This makes it a good complement to a WSJ subscription. To their credit, the authors include some economic indicators that aren't published in the WSJ, and disclose other methods of getting the information. The paper the book is printed on is very cheap. It will not stand up to hard wear.
