A Good Comprehensive Guide To Econ. But Needs Some Revision

This textbook is much easier to understand than the reviewer who gave it one star makes it out to be. It's not a book where everything that is written is not going to be understandable. Although he does have a point that the author tends to become lazy and not explain certain terms in the textbook. But there is a Glossary. The book, however, does describe many of the economic processes well and, sometimes, vividly. Sadly, in some spots, the author seems to move at a brisk pace and doesn't go into real depth about some of the economic processes and calculations. I noticed in one of the later chapters he was showing how to use the Multiplier effect and explained it all in text without bothering to show a step-by-step process of how to do it. So it gets confusing unless you have someone who knows the material extremely well show you. The author does this in several spots of the book but they are few and far between. At the end of each chapter are key terms and review questions. On top of that, a workbook is included. In this workbook, a more abstract telling of each chapter is given and some questions are asked. This workbook is very helpful and is, in my opinion, a better learning companion than the textbook itself since it gets right to the point of things. Also included is a CD-ROM with two 40 minute videos and access to the DiscoverEcon database that has more learning materials including 255 minutes worth of instructional videos; which help a lot as well especially if you are more of a visual learner like myself. This textbook is definitely worth the price; but you also get a CD-ROM and a very helpful workbook. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in studying economics or taking an economics class. This is just about as comprehensive as you are going to get in an economics textbook.

Excellent Book!

I am pursuing an MBA. I had no economics background, however I found this book to be easy to read, very well structured and most of all, you can find the actual applications of Economics. I highly recommend this book over Economics from Samuelson, he's a brilliant economist but he clearly doesn't explain as good. If you are going to buy only one book of economics, I recommend this one.

One of the best books in Foreign Policies Problems

The best problem solver ever. GREAT!!!

Winter term is eons away (thank the academic powers that be), but it's never too early to save.

Did you know Thrift Books sells textbooks? I didn't either. But now that I've figured it out, my life will never be the same. Actually, it will be exactly same; I'll just be richer.
