It's really good. Brilliant man. I just wish I could dedicate more time to it (and less time to Great Expectations).

Wealth of Nations counts as one of the great books that most people have never read, but "heard of". It is a tough read and very boring in parts, but he is the father of capitalism in many respects so force your way through it. It is worth it.
