Henry Hazlitt wrote this book following his stint at the New York Times as an editorialist. His hope was to reduce the whole teaching of economics to a few principles and explain them in ways that people would never forget. It worked.

Yes to all, and I also recommend these books: - Human Action (Mises) - Maps of Meaning (Peterson) - Antifragile (Taleb) - Honest Money (Gary North) - The Case Against Reality (Hoffman) - The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood (Gleick) - Economics in One Lesson (Hazlitt)

Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt remains a good intro. There are lots of good popular econ books from Steven Landsburg, Tim Harford, Levitt and Dubner, Tyler Cowen--any of those would be excellent.

It’s a great book!
