Exceptional correlation of history and economic behavior

I've read a lot of books and came upon this one by chance. I have to admit I didn't know much about economics going in but came out feeling much more comfortable. Also it was a fun read. I would way it's a must read. Great book!

Economix is a delightful way to approach what is usually a dull subject. It touches on what works and what doesn't while it lays bare the foibles and mistakes of supposedly clever and knowledgeable people. It also pokes holes in sacred script, hard statistics. It is a rollicking survey of one of the most hard-to-understand factors in the dynamics of our nation.
