6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Sean Brocklebank on January 1, 2013
Format: Hardcover
I read this book to get an overview of the topic (rather than as part of a course), and thought it was excellent.

If you are looking for a modern overview of economic growth, then perhaps the most important feature to consider is the technical level of the book. Weil's book is in the middle when it comes to the technical level, and is appropriate for people who already know at least a little bit of economics (e.g. supply & demand) and are comfortable with basic algebra (but not necessarily calculus, which only ever shows up in a handful of Weil's footnotes).

For those who want the least technical books, there are popular titles like "The Next Convergence" (by Spence) and "Why Nations Fail" (by Acemoglu & Robinson). These are written for a general audience and will involve no math and relatively few charts or graphs. They're easier to read than the more technical books listed below, but they also give a less complete picture of the field.

For those who want the most technical books, there are PhD-oriented texts like "Introduction to Modern Economic Growth" (also by Acemoglu) or "The Economics of Growth" (by Aghion & Howitt).

For what it is, this book is well written and very readable. It does an excellent job of condensing economic growth theory into an understandable textbook. However, it is missing a lot of nuance (and no endogenous growth theory!?). For a more complete perspective on development and growth economics, I'd recommend taking a look at a nuber of outside resources, such as "Poor Economics".
