This book is more than 50 years old, yet it is more relevant today than ever. It is one of the better examples of how thinking like an economist can help us understand what is going on around us.
The author speaks in plain language - not equations and economic gobbledy-gook. He makes a clear statement of his premises (what he intends to prove or show) at the beginning of each section, then goes about doing it with a minimum of high-brow obfuscation.
What the book did for me is make clear the logical and rational basis for much of the behavior we see in politics today - especially related to Party maneuvering and messaging.
It's still an economics book - not a novel. If you have no use for such things you won't like it. But as economics books go it's one of the clearest, most understandable and most fascinating I've read.
