If you need something for economics this book will help but it is tough to follow and doesnt really help you understand what is going on with econ. If you however had a little higher understanding of the economics i would say that it would be perfect for you but if you arent very good at economics then i would not recommend this book to you.

The product came on time.

cons:
it was binder that held the text book pages. literally a three hole binder.
this meant that the pages started to fall out right away.so it was mostly useless.

pros. it was the right book,

The book as a whole is reasonably effective at giving one a basic understanding of microeconomic and macroeconomic principles. It does fall short though in effectively explaining certain principles and even at times completely contradicts itself. I think the reason it fails in some aspects is that it attempts to over-simplify, which occasionally pulls far too much out and doesn't allow for reasonable comprehension. So at times you will be forced to find other sources that explain certain principles more completely and effectively. The authors have impressive resumes, Hubbard especially given he is the Dean at Columbia University Graduate School of Business, which made it even more disappointing to find such failures. My advice with this book is to use it as a guide, and a tool to provoke thinking about the subjects presented in a chapter, but do not make it your only source especially if you have more questions or concerns about the material.

My Prof let us use other editions so we didnt have to fork out $200 and this was a perfect value. Paid no more than $15 for book, shipping and a 3 ring binder.
