This badly named but invaluable book is vintage Economist style, method, and theory.

If it is not what its title leads one to believe, this is pardonable on the grounds that it is perhaps better than that. Bishop's 'The Joy of Economics'! These ten careful pages constitute a virtual primer on economic discussion in broad historical outline and the state of the question today.

Entries from A 'Absolute advantage' to Z 'Zero-sum game' then fill out this handbook-sized volume with intelligent summary and effective cross-referencing. This a quick and dirty introduction to economics. I really enjoyed it, as it is not too technical, but covered enough to let me feel like I had a good grasp of the basics. It is not going to make you an expert, but if you are curious about learning more about economics, it is a great place to start.

I am a very avid reader of the Economist magazine. I bought this book to give me a deeper understanding of economic theory, but the list format makes this book rather useless aside as a pure reference "dictionary". It covers topics on a cursory level. It's too brief for the novice and likely too basic for the expert. This book exceeded expectations. I assumed it would provide the information I needed, and it did. But it was also nicely written and pleasant to read. Great common sense explanations of the terms used in the dismal science.

Essential Economics. Matthew Bishop. Economics is the 'study of how society uses its scarce resources' or, more snappily, 'the science of choices' that helps people make decisions about how to use such scarce things as land, labour, raw materials, capital, entrepreneurial spirit and time. An understanding of economics can therefore help people in politics and public service, in business and the professions, and even in their private life make decisions that will produce the results they are seeking to achieve. This book is a clear and lively guide to the essentials of economics, with entries that stretch from A to Z and cover such topics, terms and jargon as: Animal spirits, Barter, Cannibalise, Dumping, Economic man, First-mover advantage, Gresham's Law, Hypothecation, Inequality, J-curve, Kleptocracy, Lump of labour fallacy, Money illusion, New economy, Opportunity cost, Positional goods, Queueing, Random walk, Satisficing, Tragedy of the commons, Utility, Value at risk, Winner-takes-all markets, X-efficiency, Yield gap and Zero-sum game.
