Help wanted - Beginners guide to economics

Can you recommend a good beginners guide to economics?
The more I try to keep track of the world the more I realise that the subject dominates and apart from being able to draw the price:supply and demand graph (sometimes even getting it right) I am a bit of a novice on the topic.
Although I have something of the right about me politically I'd prefer any book that explained the principles clearly enough for an engineer rather than a polemic.
Any suggestions would be welcomed by him, me and I'm sure a lot of others.
