Author of the extremely popular Dear Economist column in Financial Times, Tim Harford reveals the economics behind everyday phenomena in this highly entertaining and informative book. Can a book about economics be fun to read? It can when Harford takes the reins, using his trademark wit to explain why it costs an arm and a leg to buy a cappuccino and why it's nearly impossible to purchase a decent used car. Supermarkets, coffee houses, airlines, insurance companies, and more are sucking money from our wallets. To protect ourselves and our bank accounts, we must better understand why companies do what they do. Download and start listening now!

    " Reviewing this entertaining (yes, entertaining) introduction to the economist's view of the world. I've read plenty of econ intro books for laypeople, and I think this one is the best. "

    " Assigned reading for my study abroad program in college. I read this after taking Econ 101 for a semester two years prior - got a lot more out of this book than the class I took (probably because it was at 8:30...) "
