    Charm is good business. It can increase your income, boost your status, and establish and maintain your reputation. Most businesspeople don't fully understand the concept of charm. It ought to be a reflex, a conditioned response, to "turn on the charm" when dealing with customers, clients, associates, and employees, but it isn't. Charm draws customers. Charm gets noticed. But charm is only partly innate. Much of it is learned.

    The author finds 1000 different ways to say that charm is important. Treating people nicely and showing that you care by going the extra mile is important. And it will help you. And you should do it. Then go out and do it more.

    Get the idea? Now you've heard about 99% of what this book has to offer. There's nothing here that isn't pure common sense.

    In Discover Your Inner Economist, one of America's most respected economists presents a quirky, incisive romp through everyday life that reveals how you can turn economic reasoning to your advantage - often when you least expect it to be relevant. Like no other economist, Tyler Cowen shows how economic notions, such as incentives, signals, and markets, apply far more widely than merely to the decisions of social planners, governments, and big business.

    "A horrible waste of time"
    Overall

    Probably one of the worst books I've ever read. This book is not about economics. Rather, it is the random musings of a guy who puts himself forth as an expert on just about everything, but offers almost nothing that has any basis in fact. He offers suggestions about finding good ethnic food, visiting art museums, and explains that it rarely makes sense to read a book all the way through. Gee, I really wish I had followed his advice on that last one...

    The book is so ridiculously bad that I actually laughed out loud in some places. I gave it every chance to get better, but to no avail. This book REALLY sucks. really. I mean it. It does. Royally.
