Short, punchy, and very well-written ... a terrific read. -- Kevin O'Rourke, author * A Short History of Brexit *
These lively essays ... are consistently insightful and manage to make complex ideas clear. -- David Miles, author * Macroeconomics *
Williams has chosen an engaging cast of characters; his collection is full of well-lived lives and grisly endings ... Williams relishes these little details and keeps the history lesson tearing along at pace. With roughly ten pages per economist, he writes with a style that is clear and has an eye on the student market ... Consume it as a whole or dip in and out. Either way, he leaves you a lot wiser. -- Philip Aldrick * The Times *
