Editorial Reviews

Review

"I think it is more reader friendly than other texts. In addition, it uses both numeric and/or graphical examples, which is very useful for the students."

"We used to use Case and Fair's text. Mankiw seems to be a better text because it actually follows through with giving applications to what he includes in the book. For example, there is much better material in Mankiw about consumer surplus, producer surplus, government policies and interventions in the market."

"Very student friendly text. Makes economics easy to understand. Some of the other texts would take a lot of reading to explain an idea."

I have other e-books that are great because they looks exactly like the original copy. I wish this e-book looked exactly like the hard copy of the book. The page numbers are ridiculous. It doesn't even follow the original hard copy, which makes it hard to follow my professor when he tells the class to turn to a certain page. If i could return this I would. I would spend the extra dollar amount for the hard copy instead of this.

I enjoyed this book very much. It was interesting, informative and had some great detail about global economics. It could have used some cartoons to jazz it up a bit.

Greg's analogies in Chapters 1 and 2 were frustrating. He picks up the pace from Chapter 4. I loved his discussion about government policy and the U.S. government debt in Chapter 8.

Mankiw gives us an interesting book of economics in a practical, down to earth way filled with real life cases and situations and many other tools to reinforce what is being learned from the book. You can't go wrong with this book if you want to study basic principals of economics for the first time and principals of macroeconomics. It's a more comfortable and fluent read compared to other books. The amount of information per unit and theme is just right. It has met and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this book!
