My former teacher Tyler Cowen wrote in his blog:
"If you want to read one book on how the economics profession works, this is it."
Read more here.
The book he is referring to is David Warsh's Knowledge and the Wealth of Nations.
Chicago's Bob Lucas wrote:
"David Warsh does a marvelous job with the story of Paul Romer and the new growth theory. His description of what Paul did is accurate and exciting, and it gives a great sense of the way theoretical economics is done today and of how it contributes to advances on the questions that Adam Smith and David Ricardo posed 200 years ago.”
