Author : Niall Kishtainy.
With over 7 million copies sold worldwide to date, The Economics Book is part of the award-winning Big Ideas series from DK Books. It uses innovative graphics along with engaging writing to make complex subjects easier to understand.
Economics is a broad topic and if you're not an economist by profession, your knowledge might be limited - until now! The Economics Book is your jargon-free, visual guide to understanding the production and distribution of wealth.
From Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas, to Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes, to the top economic thought leaders of today, The Economics Book is the essential reference for students and anyone else with an interest in how economies work.
Easy-to-follow graphics, succinct quotations, and thoroughly accessible text throw light on the applications of economics, making them relatable through everyday examples and concerns.
Employing DK's trademark visual approach, The Economics Book takes a frequently confusing subject and makes sense of it, clearly highlighting both historically important and emerging ideas in this critical field.

"Presented in broadly chronological order, this is a terrifically readable encyclopedia-like introduction to a very wide range of ideas and concepts in economics, from the emergence of basic classical economic ideas right up to date including the credit crunch causes and the more recent research in behavioural economics. The style is simple and well laid out and crucially the book managed to neither over-estimate nor under-estimate the intelligence of the readers. It uses simple language but is never patronizing."
"A great series of books. I have a few subjects now. They offer a nice overview of the subject and introduce key people in the field with a list of their main works which is useful for further reading. The books are very colourful, well presented and have interesting quotes from the subject area. The books are a cross between a brief history of the subject and a simple introduction to the various ideas/scholars."
"If you are really struggling to make head or tell of all the economic mess we seem to be slipping into every day then, this is the book you need. It beautifully describes all the micro and macro economic concepts along with the reason behind their development, that too with beautiful images!" - Google Reviews.
