Official Mises Institute edition. Unabridged.
Ludwig von Mises truly was an intellectual giant among men. He was perhaps the greatest economist of the 20th century and a tireless advocate for political liberalism and laissez-faire. Human Action, his magnum opus, stands among the truly great works of social science. But his work, based on the study of human action, transcends both economics and social theory.
Mises's scholarship is more relevant than ever today. His clarity, wisdom, and brilliance are the product of a once-in-a-generation mind. Every intelligent person will benefit from introducing - or reacquainting - themselves with that mind through the curated writings contained in this volume. Mises is required reading for anyone who seeks to understand the critical questions of our time or any time.
Each generation must learn anew from their predecessors the virtues of private property and the consequences of statism. Those ready to dive into deeper Misesian waters are encouraged to pick up The Mises Reader Unabridged, which contains all the material in The Mises Reader plus plenty of additional material, primarily from his more scholarly works.
If you are interested in things economic, you can do no better than to turn to Ludwig von Mises.

The content of the book is impressive in many respects. However, I think it is much more enjoyable and informative to read 'Human Action'. This book claims that 'The Mises Reader' is more digestible. I completely disagree. Indeed Human Action is a great classic while 'The Mises Reader' is a bit redundant in comparison. Moreover, the narration is very unpleasant. The tone of the narrator is not suitable for such a book. It irritated my ears. By contrast, 'Human Action' is perfectly narrated, and with certainly greater content requiring no prior reading (unlike 'The Mises Reader' claims to justify its contribution).
