Independently minded publishing

– Dr Eamonn Butler, Director, Adam Smith Institute

An enormously useful feature of this edition is the selection of famous quotes at the beginning. Smith’s insightful epigrams such as “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest” and his famous remarks on the “invisible hand” can be hard to find in the original, but here they all are, laid out easily and accessibly. There is also a brief guide which explains to the reader what Smith was trying to do in each section of the work, which makes reading it much easier.”
