Please share with us any academic books and authors you absolutely loved.
I wish good academic books were as popular as novels. I find them equally, if not more, entertaining.
Currently I'm reading and liking :
Book: Theory of Price
Author: George Stigler
Comment: it's the first book I've ever read on economics. The best thing I like is that the book is meant for the layman. He uses intuitive examples, thought provoking exercises, and Instead of intimidating us with jargon and symbols, he attempts to convince us why economics matters, what are its limitations, and how it affects us in a very straightforward manner.
