This paper reviews Diane Coyle's book "Sex, Drugs, and Economics," which uses far-reaching examples such as the sex industry, illegal drugs, and sports to illustrate basic economic concepts. Coyle's thesis is that economics can explain human behavior in virtually every sphere of human life. Her book attempts to show this through basic economic concepts, such as supply and demand. Economics also is helpful to make apparently inexplicable aspects of human life clearer, such as why persons engage in risky activities more as teens than during other periods of their life, or why people chose to take illegal drugs. The paper concludes by stating that Coyle's book makes economics more understandable through its original and refreshing format.
