    Another economics text which takes well from other disciplines.
    By the time you get to the other end you will have a much better idea about how economics can help you understand life, the universe and everything. What you won't get is a "recipe" for the hard of thinking. The author gives a potted history of the newer big ideas that have informed economics and relates them to earlier thinking. He also explains their limitations. He brings in good links to systems theory (engineering and science perspectives). AND, if you get the references, (they're not obscure, but you do need to know them) he is very funny. Always a bonus when you are reading a book about economics. A minor criticism - I am suspicious when log/log graphs are used to prove a relationship, log/log can show a relationship between chalk and cheese.
