Book Recommendation: Pop Econ stuff

This book is actually pretty short, only about 80 pages by a Harvard trained soft-libertarian economist teaching at George Mason in DC. I'm currently reading it. It is not a boring academic piece, more pop-econo stuff, but very well written and explained. I'm also a fan of this guys blog, he co-writes "Marginal Revolutions" .

"The Great Stagnation: How America Ate All The Low-Hanging Fruit of Modern History,Got Sick, and Will (Eventually) Feel Better", by Tyler Cowen

I'm from the DC area and this guy is great, heard him speak once. There was an article in Businessweek about how other economist are scared to take him on because he is thought to be a type of genius and will destroy them in his intellectual comeback. They are also jealous that he publishes narrative works although he has not "paid his dues" building econ-models for 20 or 30 years.
