The Third Gate by Lincoln Childs.
Reading is my escape..
I just finished Jane Eyre and now I searched for books for beginners to understand economy. I'm reading "How an econonmy grows and why it crashes", though not sure about it, there are some radical opinions.
Primal Blueprint ;)
And "In search of lost time part 1 (Swann's Way)", by Proust... bit of a contrast :D
"Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver - love the idea of living off the land [/QUOTE]^
An amazing book and one that should be read by anyone considering self-sufficiency.
Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas
The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
I'm reading two...Life of Pi and Fallen Angels and the Origins of Evil. Also been working on doing my own writing project for NaNoWriMo.
Wheel of Time Winter's Heart
The last one sucked and I only got 1 chapter in.
I'm reading Moneyless Manifesto. Do a google search and you can read it free online. Even if you don't want to live moneyless, there's great info on how to do things without money.

I think the best and clearest introduction to economics is "Economics in One Lesson", by Henry Hazlitt.
I believe that you find your current book radical because it is not based on Keynesian economics, which is about all that is taught these days. Peter Schiff instead believes in the Austrian theory of economics, which got its name because its founders were from Austria. If you ever want to read the Austrian critique of Keynes, Hazlitt's "Failure of the New Economics" is excellent. Hazlitt had a gift for providing clear explanations of complex ideas.
I'm reading "Who's Pulling Your Strings" by Harriet B. Braiker PhD. Intersting book on breaking the bonds on manipulation.
