The Mind of the Market by Michael Shermer

Michael Shermer’s The Mind of the Market: Compassionate Apes, Competitive Humans, and Other Tales from Evolutionary Economics is interesting but I was totally wrong about the premise of the book.

As I’ve gotten further along, it’s become clear that this book is Shermer’s treatise on free market economies.

I don’t know much about the free market theory — though I generally believe in it anyway — so I appreciate the educational aspect of this book, but I don’t like feeling mislead about the book’s premise.

Will write more when I finish the book — click here to read an excerpt or here to visit Shermer’s website.
