Interesting read but narrator lack enthusiasm

This good provides a good understanding of economic concepts with tangible examples, however Thomas sowell is biased towards a hayekian view throughout the book. Non-the-less the book was an interesting and insightful read for those who want to think beyond typical economic policies.
