This is a wonderful book! It reads very well gives you the basic outline for different topics that Veblen wrote on. Each topic will cover material from anything he wrote, not just looking at the theory of leisure class or the theory of the business enterprise in isolated. This book is especially import since Veblen's own way to right things can be very confusing, but McCormick makes Veblen easy to understand.
