Economics is a fascinating subject. The basic idea is to allocate limited resources in an efficient manner. This book, Economics: An A-Z Guide, is a collection of economic terms arranged in alphabetical order and edited by Matthew Bishop. It covers everything from Absolute Advantage to the Zero-Sum Game. Along the way, we encounter the idea of the Gini Coefficient and the Tragedy of the Commons. We also get short biographies of some of the greatest economists in history. They cover Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, and a few others. We also get a Crash Course in the evolution of Economic Ideas.

All in all, this book was pretty good, but it only works as an introduction to the subject.
