"Inside the Economist’s Mind: Conversations with Eminent Economists (ITEM) will prove an invaluable resource for those wishing to understand the greats and their work. . . Readers find eccentric and irascible characters behind some of the major innovations in economic science, and that is the draw to the book."
Of particular interest is the conclusion to the book review:
"Inside the Economist’s Mind is a very rare thing—an economic page-turner, like Heilbroner’s The Worldly Philosophers, Foley’s Adam’s Fallacy, and Levitt and Dubner’s Freakonomics. The personalities behind the frontiers of economic research make for compelling reading. I can’t recommend it enough."
