ec·o·nom·ics: a simple twist on normalcy by by Kersten L. Kelly
This is a clever, fascinating book about economics and how it affects pretty much every aspect of our lives. It is an easy to understand guide to the basic theories that govern our lives. I really didn’t expect it to be so entertaining. I expected more of a textbook flow, but the examples really make the reading experience a fun one. The writing is clear and concise, getting the author’s point across without tangling it up, which in this kind of non-fiction book, is not that easy to do.
Obviously, this book might not be for everyone. I’ve always enjoyed reading about economics, but I think even for those of you who struggle to understand the very intellectualized concepts, this book will provide a more down-to-Earth way of looking at this science. I definitely recommend it for all lovers of non-fiction. An easy, satisfying read.
