Tim Harford is a riveting expositor of the field, lively and fair minded, and his books The Undercover Economist and its macroeconomic companion piece The Undercover Economist Strikes Back are excellent places to start, both because they are so interesting in themselves and also because they give a good initiation in how economists think and study these sorts of questions -- John Lanchester
Tim has a really exceptional talent for telling a simple and a very easily understood and yet still incredibly interesting story about economics -- Planet Money * The Indicator *
Every Tim Harford book is cause for celebration. He makes 'the dismal science' seem like an awful lot of fun -- Malcolm Gladwell
Our chief economic storyteller ... thanks to people such as Harford, the profession will gain a better informed audience * Independent *
Clear-thinking and easy to read ... he has mastered the art of dealing with this subject without the use of a single diagram or mathematical equation * Sunday Times *
Reading Harford is like finding yourself next to the funniest, smartest fellow at the party. It is such fun that readers will hardly notice that, by the end, they've mastered macroeconomics * Financial Times *
