I ordered this book for my Economic Development class and will keep it even when I'm done with studying. The book is written in simple language, contains a lot of interesting examples, and explains the main economic growth theories and problems in such a way, that you read it as an overwhelming novel and remember the concepts easily. It is also very human - I mean it sees real people beyond the facts and figures. Thank you, Mr. Easterly, for a wonderful work! I'm a native Russian speaker with a lot of translation experience, so if you ever want to have your book translated into Russian, let me know :)
