Review Text

  • By Exiledowl on 19 August 2012

    I have to agree with other buyers of books that are available for free.There is no contents list so finding your way around is difficult in what is after all a reference book and there seem to be many spelling mistakes and glitches with the layout. A small cover price for a better edition is probably worth the investment. But at least it is all here including book V on taxation.The book is heavy going being written in the language of 1775 and Adam Smith's style could not be described as succinct. It is still surprising that nearly 240 years after it was written much of the text is still relevant once you get your head around bushels etc. and pounds, shillings and pence. Hard work but worth it in the end.

    Still relevant after two and a half centuries. What more is there to say? I returned to it fifty years after reading it as an undergraduate and found much of it as convincing as I did then, not least because it is far deeper and more wide ranging than the fundamentalist neo-con text that is often claimed by today's Left and Right

    Beautiful style, but just too old for a general reader. His insights are now, of course, commonplace; not his fault, they were completely original at the time. But I can say I've read it !

    Great classic book. Brilliantly written. Much easier to read than you might expect for something written so long ago, and quite lively for a book on economics.
