Discover Your Inner Economist is disappointing

I expected a book in the line of Freakonomics or The Undercover Economist and the first chapter brilliantly set the stage for such a book. Unfortunately, Tyler Cowen seemed more interested in preaching how to live your life rather than discovering your inner economist. I could feel his disapproving gaze for not appreciating art or food the way he does. Skip it and read The Undercover Economist instead.

  • fabrice — usually i agree with you but this is one case where i must disagree. i loved “Discover Your Inner Economist” — it was a very smart and witty book that made me think.
