The book explains the fundamentals of economics with out making it an heavy and complicated thesis on keywords and broad global issues .
The book is written in innovative manner and manages to make the subject of economics a very interesting topic . The most interesting part is that the author actually uses word “economics” quite sparingly in the entire book .
The book is written by Greek economist with same name as in the title of the post , and constructed as a conversation between him and his daughter . Book starts with basic question of human intelligence , evolution and the factors that lead to diverse paths that various cultures took to evolve . How the climate and geographical factors were responsible for certain societies and clusters to become tech savvy and other not so much .
The history about the “credit” is fascinating and so are many other explanations in the book .
This is a must read for every body Students , CEOS, managers , Fathers , Mothers , women , workers and anyone out of school. I mentioned the list specifically as many people think economics is only for economists and statesmen, collage professors or students of finance .
This books changed that perception of mine and I would recommend every adult to read this book irrespective of their line of work or subjects of their interest . Believe me , it now that hard to get engrossed the the book and it is a short book .
