Review: Free to Choose: A Personal Statement

User Review  - Garima Mamgain - Goodreads

The first two chapters of this book are generic and are a very interesting read. When the author turns to specifics it becomes very America centric and at places I found it difficult to relate. The book is an OK read.. I am sure there are many better Milton Friedman books out there. Read full review
