The repetition is great and it explains what you are saying really well. I for once find it easy to remember what had been covered.

We seem to have given up on any serious effort to prevent catastrophic climate change. Exposing the work of ideologues on the right who know the challenge this poses to the free market all too well, Naomi Klein also challenges the failing strategies of environmental groups. It's time to stop running from the full implications of the crisis and begin to embrace them.

I agree with the message of the book however I fell like the information could be much more succinct. Every new chapter I am left thinking that it sounds just like the last, making it difficult to maintain focus.

Basic Economics has been written with the thought that learning economics should be not only a relaxed experience but also an enjoyable one.

The content was a bit slow for me and stayed on one topic too long, probably because I have studied economics at university. Overall it made some valid point and worked to show people how the economy actually works however some aspects it suggested should be market driven such as healthcare I think should have been looked at from a wider perspective, overall very American views.
