Book Notes: "Adam Smith" by D.D. Raphael

Adam SmithAdam Smith by D.D. Raphael

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A brief but useful overview of Smith's major works. The book refutes some earlier comparisons of the idea of "sympathy" in Moral Sentiments versus Wealth of Nations and adds some of its own. If you were time poor and had to choose between this book and Smith's two main tomes, this book would be adequate but it assumes some prior knowledge of the eccentric "Father of Capitalism".
