If you know Sonlight, you know we couldn't put together our own Economics program without including some piece of wonderful literature. Our choice: The Invisible Heart: An Economic Romance by Russell Roberts.
Roberts' work offers a novel insight into Economics (pun totally intended). This modern economics book gives practical and emotionally challenging "feet" to many theories that might otherwise seem dry and unfeeling. Your students will see how economic principles and concepts surround them every day and in every way.
If your students read The Invisible Heart as part of Sonlight's Economics program, it also gives them a pleasurable break from the more theoretical lectures.
