I was wondering if anyone could recommend any good economics books for me to read. I've already been recommended and have read both Freakonomics books so I was wondering if anyone could recommend a book in written a similar easy reading style but maybe more about macroeconomics.
PS. Are there any books that look good to say you have read on a PS?
The Accidental Theorist by Paul Krugman.
The best book all round book for beginners is Principles of Economics by Greg Mankiw - new copies are expensive but you can find older editions cheap on amazon and they are just as good for the theory. It's a textbook but written in a more easy reading way than most textbooks, and the early parts of that book eg his ten principles are a great way to really understand how to think like an economist. His blog is worth reading too: http://gregmankiw.blogspot.co.uk/
freakonomics, the undercover economist are the ones most people read.
