    An 'Econimics' book would be about economy.
    An 'Economical' would be a book that didn't cost you much, ie cheap

    I think this needs a bit of revision:

    An Economics book is about Economics, not about economy.

    An economical book is a strange concept: in what way is it economical? - if it's economical with the truth, it's a book full of lies.
