    This book is a great read and easy to follow for non economists Includes mind maps that explain the concepts of economics and finance Does not go to much in depth in each topic as each topic can basically be a class within itself But for someone wondering what economics is like the chapters in this book can give one a pretty good picture as to what one would study in a basic undergraduate college.
