From the Back Cover
Adopting an economic and evolutionary approach throughout, Hayak examines the nature, origin, selection and development of the differing moralities of socialism and the market order; he recounts the extraordinary powers that 'the extended order' of the market, as he calls it, bestows on mankind, constituting and enabling the development of civilization.

“We understand now that all enduring structures above the level of the simplest atoms, and up to the brain and society, are the results of, and can be explained only in terms of, processes of selective evolution…”
If Hayek is correct, then eventually mankind will stumble upon such truths and thus get closer to Hayek and Herbert Spencer. Anyone familiar with their evolutionary synthesis can see this process occurring.
This short book is fantastic, it is an easy read, much easier and shorter than Hayek's The Road to Serfdom, yet it is far more profound in terms of the key insights. Simply a MUST.
