Milton Friedman (1912–2006) was an economist who taught at the University of Chicago for more than three decades

Milton Friedman (1912–2006) was an economist who taught at the University of Chicago for more than three decades.

Their involvement with world leaders and many of this century's most important public policy issues moves their memoir beyond the merely personal and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century ideas. The Friedmans come across as the last Enlightenment thinkers in a post-modern world. This is a book that restores your faith in reasoned discourse.

In Two Lucky People, Rose and Milton Friedman provide a memorable and lively account of their lives, the people they knew, and the work they shared. Their involvement with world leaders and many of this century's most important public policy issues moves their memoir beyond the merely personal and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century ideas."The Friedmans come across as the last Enlightenment thinkers in a post-modern world. . . . This is a book that restores your faith in reasoned discourse. . . . There really are people who believe in scholarly exchange as a way to discover truth."—David Brooks, New York Times Book Review"The Friedmans are a feisty couple, who clearly delight in their lives and each other. And shining through their reticence, and their conservatism, is a decency that even liberals will recognize."—Milton and Judith Viorst, Washington Post Book World"This engaging book recounts the life and contributions of one of America's most influential writers and economists in the second half of the twentieth century. And her husband's no slouch either. . . . An indispensable guide through the evolution of economic thought."—Stephen Moore, National Review"A thought-provoking book and one rich in history, the personal history of the Friedmans . . . and the cultural and political history of our country."—Steve Huntley, Chicago Sun-Times Books"[Two Lucky People] is almost like a letter from a couple of old friends—a couple of old friends who had a long, compelling intellectual journey, came to know some of the great world leaders of this century, and had 60 years of happy, supportive marriage."—N. Gregory Mankiw, Fortune"A rich autobiographical and historical panorama."—William P. Kucewicz, Wall Street Journal

excellent!

I have read two other books written by Milton Friedman. All have been excellent books including this one.

One of the best Memoirs I have ever read. Written in plain, pleasant way, explaining how the monetarism was "born". I do recommended it two everybody, who is the "student" of Milton Friedman and his Rose.

Awesome book! However, the first one comes with unreasonable green mark on the edge of the book wich affect 2/3 of the pages. But Amazon is so good at making me a replacement---giving me extra work of printing the label, packing up, and waiting for an extra time. I really suggest that Amazon should urge its people to double check the item before they send it out. This would save them lots of money as well.

Two happy people is a bit of a bore, I am afraid. Don't get me wrong, I am interested in the life and work of these two and this is without a doubt the ultimate biography, and not only because it is an auto-biography. But it is perhaps too complete (600-odd pages, in 4to!). You can see how Freidman came to be who he was, and that is exciting, but there are extra arid sections. A must-read, though, to get a glimpse not only of Friedman the man, but Friedman the economist at work.

I like the book. But the quality of the book was not as good as I expected. It was used as a collection from a library. The cover sleeve was missing, and the cover was loose.
This is a great book for anyone who is interested in Milton Friedman, economics, The University of Chicago, twentieth-century intellectual history, university politics, or rags-to-riches stories. Both authors have led very interesting lives and the tone throughout the book is upbeat and positive. This is one of the best and most-influential books I have ever read. Milton Friedman is one of the most clear-thinking, intelligent people of the twentieth-century and our country would be better off if more of his ideas on economics, education, and freedom were put into practice.
