Reviews

A great book, but better to start at volume 1


(5 stars)

An excellent read of a fascinating book. Kudos to the reader for keeping five volumes of economic theory interesting. Topical, given the dependence politicians of the Right seem to place on the text.

Outstanding Reading


(5 stars)

Brilliant book by a brilliant mind. Read by a person who carried the authors passion for the topic.

Educational


(5 stars)

This book of Smith's is particularly insightful in regards to historical events at the time. As always a good, clear reading, though it can be a little void of dynamics, which considering the content is not surprising.
