Reviews

"Learning economics should be fun. Klein and Bauman make sure that it is." --N. Gregory Mankiw, Professor of Economics, Harvard University, and author of Principles of Economics

"Hilarity and economics are not often found together, but this book has a lot of both. It also does a great job of explaining important economic concepts simply, accurately, and entertainingly--quite a feat." --Eric Maskin, Nobel Laureate in Economics

"Bauman and Klein present solid basic economics in a brilliant cartoon wrapper. The authors successfully shine a happy light on the dismal science." --Hugo Sonnenschein, Distinguished Service Professor and President Emeritus, University of Chicago

"This is a seriously funny book! Klein and Bauman offer an enlightening and entertaining look at why our day-to-day choices matter and how they all combine. Students will find this a great addition to their textbooks, and critics of the discipline will learn what economics is really about." --Diane Coyle, author of The Soulful Science

"Had Art Spiegelman and John Maynard Keynes collaborated on a comic book on economics, they could only have dreamed of coming up with something this good." --Jonathan A. Shayne, a.k.a. Merle Hazard, country singer and founder of Shayne & Co., LLC

"Klein's preferences for relatively thick lines and bare-bones perspective . . . [conjures] the work of the marvelous New Yorker cartoonist Lou Myers . . . Probably the least dismal treatment of the dismal science ever." --Booklist

"For anybody who is genuinely interested in economics, who really wants to learn the jargon, or anyone who is starting out studying an economics course, this is just a brilliant source." --Tim Harford, author of Adapt
