This quote from one of the 100+ instructor users says it best: “I got the book and, frankly, couldn't put it down. I have listened to all of Tim's programs for The Teaching Company and find him to be an extremely knowledgeable economist, who has the ability to take complex issues and make them come alive. His book is really an extension of his rather amazing style.”
