"Despite its reputation, economics is neither a 'dismal science' nor a difficult field of study. Economics is fascinating and easy to understand, except when someone presents it in a boring or difficult way.
   "In order to make this book as interesting and understandable as possible, I sought the advice of dozens of students as well as business managers and investors No concept was included until it was declared to be clear and easy to understand." —p.17
