    "Exactly what the title says!"

    I was expecting a dry and boring book, instead I've enjoyed every minute of it. Excellent listen! Gives you a complete understanding of the key principles of economics, and what is happening in the world right now. Packed with information, so in order to absorb everything, I've had to re-listen some parts over. But that's probably because I was driving at the moment. And last, but not least the narration is superb! Would definitely recommend this book.

    "Satisfying, introductory, British"

    This book does go into international topics, but is England-centric. Nevertheless I found it useful as an introduction, and easy to listen to.
