One's been mentioned here a long while back, but if you didn't read it  
then, you should now.  It's a very erudite "history of wealth through  
the 20th century" by the former head of risk / strategy at Morgan  
Stanley.

The second is a more general-econ book for laymen (than e.g. the Alpha  
book I mentioned last week.)  It's by Arnold Kling, a contributor to  
EconLog (read it!) and, I'm fast becoming convinced, one of the sanest  
people left in this country.

Out of stock, by a used copy.
