In this extensively revised and expanded second edition, Uncle Eric introduces the concept of model. Models (or paradigms) are how people think; they are how we understand our world. Models help us recognize and use the information that is important and bypass that which is not. To achieve success in our careers, investments, and every other part of our lives, we need sound models. In this book, Mr. Maybury introduces the models he has found most useful (Economics and Higher Law). This is the first book in the Uncle Eric series and, while designed to stand alone, provides an excellent foundation for Maybury's other books. Quality paper, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", 192 pages. Ages 14 through Adult.
Can be used for courses in business, finance, economics and entrepreneurship.

Uncle Eric Talks ABout Personal, Career and Financial Security (by Dr. Arthur B. Robinson, President and Research Professor, Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, commenting on the previous edition of “Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career, and Financial Security”)
“Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career, and Financial Security” by Richard J. Maybury, and all of Maybury’s Uncle Eric series of books on economics, geopolitics, justice, and history...are excellent educational experiences for both children and adults. Just the discussion of the role of ‘models’ in the functioning of the human mind [in] the first book is worth the whole set. While this discussion is not about science, it describes perfectly the functioning of the minds of good scientists. They do not memorize facts against their models – revising the models and checking the facts as they proceed.
