I wanted to ask you both the ones following the Austrian School and those Neoclassical economists.

All the economy we learn in school are mainly neoclassical and macroeconomics it is pure Keynesian.
I understand that this is mainstream, but I think it is actually limiting by only offering it when actually there is a much richer world out there.
Even the discarded theories are interesting, one thing we can learn from history is that discarded ones are at some point reborn recycled with a fresher perspective.

What books would you recommend to read which is introductory, deep and yet has a broad perspective?
I would appreciate any suggestion.

Yes Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson is a great place to start.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Hazlitt

As you learn more you have to end up with Ludwig von Mises' "Human Action" you can download the text or and audio reading on Mises.org or iTunesU.  It is his magnus opus on Praxiology, or the science of human action which Economics is a subset of.
