What People are Saying…
Cocktail Party Economics is a refreshing, easy to understand introduction to the arcane world of economics. Using an engaging, conversational style filled with many practical examples, the book does a great job explaining the concepts behind media coverage of economic and business events. I also enjoyed the lively descriptions of long-dead economists and how their ideas are relevant to our daily lives.

Cocktail Party Economics is a fun and quick read! I love the way it weaves together little things to explains big things. The flow of the stories and quotes, used to enliven the economics, feels like easy conversation. This is the easiest, and hence most “efficient”, introduction to economics I know.

I “really” enjoyed reading the book; it was pleasantly concise, entertaining due to Evie’s sarcastic & funny comments and personable stories, and really practical explanations of economic concepts.

I think that her vision is carried out skillfully, in a manner which is actually quite entertaining. It makes the book very easy to read. I really enjoyed the anecdotes and the quotes (they are all GREAT!) as well as the examples that take the drudgery (for some…) out of studying Economics. I love how much I learned about society and history through this book and through all the real life tie-ins that bring economics into plain vision, making ideas understandable.
