Today's gift idea is Basic Economics: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy by libertarian economist Thomas Sowell. This book is hefty but manages to present its ideas in a straight forward manner. I put it aside to read some other books so I did not finish it. What I read was enlightening, enough so to recommend it. There are critics of the book (of course) who decry its libertarian leanings. I rather liked reading something that wasn't the same viewpoint we always hear. I suggest reading it and making up your own mind.
Have some different gift ideas you'd like to share? Jot them in the comments section or send them to me.
Be sure to return tomorrow for Gift Idea Day 3.
