Editorial Reviews

"[The Big Ideas Simply Explained books] are beautifully illustrated with shadow-like cartoons that break down even the most difficult concepts so they are easier to grasp. These step-by-step diagrams are an incredibly clever learning device to include, especially for visual learners." – Examiner.com

"The Economics Book takes a unique approach to elucidating this often murky subject through well-written entries. The book's brilliance lies in its packaging of economic theory into easily digestible essays. Overall, this book will make economics not only accessible but potentially even fascinating to a wide range of readers at and above a high-school reading level." – Booklist *Starred Review
