Two lucky people

£325.00

Product description

660pp, including index. Personalised inscription by Milton Friedman. Crisp, clean and tightly bound pages throughout. A little foxing to top edge of block, but none present elsewhere. Clean cloth with crisp gilt titles to spine. Dust wrapper crisp and bright with minor crinkling to edges and some light shelf wear visible on close inspection. "In Two Lucky People, Rose and Milton Friedman provide a memorable and lively account of their lives, the people they knew, and the work they shared. Their involvement with world leaders and many of this century's most important public policy issues moves their memoir beyond the merely personal and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century ideas."The Friedmans come across as the last Enlightenment thinkers in a post-modern world. . . . This is a book that restores your faith in reasoned discourse. . . . There really are people who believe in scholarly exchange as a way to discover truth."-David Brooks, New York Times Book Review"The Friedmans are a feisty couple, who clearly delight in their lives and each other. And shining through their reticence, and their conservatism, is a decency that even liberals will recognize."-Milton and Judith Viorst, Washington Post Book World"This engaging book recounts the life and contributions of one of America's most influential writers and economists in the second half of the twentieth century. And her husband's no slouch either. . . . An indispensable guide through the evolution of economic thought."-Stephen Moore, National Review"A thought-provoking book and one rich in history, the personal history of the Friedmans . . . and the cultural and political history of our country."-Steve Huntley, Chicago Sun-Times Books"[Two Lucky People] is almost like a letter from a couple of old friends-a couple of old friends who had a long, compelling intellectual journey, came to know some of the great world leaders of this century, and had 60 years of happy, supportive marriage."-N. Gregory Mankiw, Fortune"A rich autobiographical and historical panorama."-William P. Kucewicz, Wall Street Journal". Also available, signed by the authors, are 'Tyranny of the Status Quo' and 'Free to Choose : A Personal Statement'.
