#6 The Instant Economist

One book comes to mind over the years because, being a bookworm, there are awfully few books I recall that had taught so much with so few words: The Instant Economist: All The Basic Principles Of Economics In 100 Pages Of Plain Talk. This book was required reading for my Baylor economics course for good reason. It eloquently and clearly communicated the basics in only 100 pages! There is no other book I could recommend more.

#7 Pricing for Profit

All business people want to earn more money, but moving the needle by getting more or better clients can be an uphill battle β€” it can be both a protracted and complex affair. On the other hand, pricing improvements can be executed quickly and create a noticeable and sometimes dramatic difference to a business's profits.

This book gives excellent insight into where most of us go wrong with pricing. It also provides a range of excellent ideas and solutions that will help business owners improve their pricing and earn more money.

I've successfully used the ideas in this book to improve the pricing of my consultancy, and friends businesses(bars and e-commerce stores). It's a must-read for any business owner who wants to get to grips with the pricing side of their business.

The book itself is pricey, but in this regard, Peter practices what he preaches β€” by putting a proper value on the excellent education he provides.

#9 Economics For Dummies

This inexpensive, but somewhat lengthy paperback (roughly 430 pages cover-to-cover), is written by a fairly young economics professor who does a good job of simplifying the complicated jargon that often seems to make economics unfathomable.

Dr. Flynn provides all the information that folks need to understand our rapidly evolving economy, as well as the basics of economics that never change. This easily digested book is a practical guide to help readers (high school age and above) understand how our world economy actually operates.
