A reasonable introduction to the ideas of Economic

A perfectly functional basic introduction to economics ideas. Lacking in any depth, but what does one expect with 50 distinct chapters crammed into a relatively short book?

The style of the writing is not too grating, and it is well enough told. However, I don't think it is a patch on Tim Harford's 'The Undercover Economist Strikes Back', and I'd recommend that instead of this if you want a simple, entertaining introduction.
