Hazlitt, Henry (1946) Economics in One Lesson, Harper and Brothers
- Less contrarian than Landsburg and contains more principles of economics than Levitt & Dubnar. A useful alternative to a textbook.
Cowen, Tyler (2007) Discover your Inner Economist, Penguin
- One of the sharpest minds applying basic economic reasoning to an array of social situations.
Frank, Robert (2007) The Economic Naturalist, Basic Books
- Somewhat repetitive reiteration of the point that economics can explain many social curiosities by recognising that things happen when the benefits exceed the costs.
Harford, Tim (2008) The Logic of Life, Little Brown
- An extension and update to Gary Becker’s classic The Economics of Life (1995).
