Review: The Age of the Economist (9th Edition)User Review - Goodreads
Good basic overview of history of economic thought. Would recommend to anyone without a background in economics. For a more scholarly and detailed discussion turn to A History of Economic Theory and Method by Robert B. Ekelund Jr. and Robert F. Hebert.
