After doing a lot of reading on libertarianism (new Ron Paul convert, lol), I find that I really need to focus on learning the fundamentals. I recently started studying Carl Menger's writings, and his "Principles" work is fascinating. He goes from the most simple and irrefutable ideas and little by little unfolds his theory. However, I feel that it would be great if there was a guide on this work that I could use that would facilitate the learning curve, is there one?
Inquisitor:Callahan's Economics for Real People is usually the starting place, though once you're done with Principles I suppose you could go on with Mises' Human Action or Rothbard's Man, Economy and State.
Callahan's http://www.mises.org/books/econforrealpeople.pdf is the easist to grasp intro to Austrian econ I've yet seen.
Henry Hazlitt's http://www.mises.org/books/onelesson.pdf is also brilliant for those just getting started.
Finally, Rothbard's What Has Government Done to Our Money? serves as a quick and easy introduction to the theory of money. http://www.mises.org/rothbard/rothmoney.pdf in PDF and http://www.mises.org/money.asp on Mises.org.

Hey guys, thanks for the help, picked up Callahan's book instead.
