Best Economics books

Stephen Kinsella thinks Heilbroner's Worldly Philosophers, is a great introductory book on economics.

Thomas Sowell
thinks otherwise;

“..its whole way of thinking leads the student away from economic analysis and away from intellectual development generally.” (p. 142, A Personal Odyssey ).

Sowell also thinks it's not worth your time reading Marx, which says a lot more about him than his distaste for Heilbroner!
