Discover Your Inner Economist

Discover Your Inner Economist by Tyler Cowen1

What I liked about Cowen's book was his point that although "people respond to incentives" is a cornerstone of modern microeconomics, he points out that it's not so easy to design incentives that produce the desired behavior.

He then attempts to apply concepts from microeconomics to everyday life. But in trying to apply the concepts without explaining them, he lost me in a few places.
