Entertaining and Educational
Without question an anti-"big government", anti-liberal, and pro-capitalist book. The author has no qualms voicing his distain for government controls on economics or shortsighted and politically motivated interference with the free market. Having noted this less than respectful attitude towards Democrats, the book is filled with sound economic education. The author quotes both Adam Smith and Ayn Rand on numerous occasions (which gives a good indication of his stance) and offers a number of excellent scholarly works as reference in the "books you aren't supposed to read" vignettes. Not as well written, or as practically informative as Robert Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad" collection, but unabridged, and 'sound as a pound' in it's economic basis. Highly recommend as basic info, a starting point in economics, and as ammo for political conservatives.

Introduction to the Austrian School of Econ
This book is very similar to Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson. It is an introduction to free market economics and the Austrian School of Economics. It is a great book to learn the basics from.
