I think the best description of Sowell's work is 'sobering'.

He makes you think.

I also like Dr. Walter Williams, who makes a point of trying to educate his audience.

I would love to take an Econ course from Dr Williams. He may possibly be the one prof who could make this subject fascinating.

The thing I like about Williams is his style of explanation in his use of everyday examples that all can relate to when examining a particular topic.

Such as his oft repeated "living document" comparrison when talking about the Constitution.

"How would you like to play poker with me and have the rules be living? Maybe my pair of 7s beats your full house."
