Book Description

March 26, 2008 0073375802 978-0073375809 7
Essentials of Economics is the market leader for the one-semester survey course. In just about 400 pages, it provides a solid introduction to the core concepts of economics with an emphasis on real-world examples and current events. Essentials has earned its popular success because, unlike other books on the market, it is free of the abstract and complex theory that requires more time than this course allows. Instead, the text is clean and concise, with many examples of significance to students today, including Headlines and Policy Perspectives that use current events to help illustrate the topics discussed. This real-world policy emphasis is a distinctive feature of Schiller’s text and is integral to its dominance of the survey text market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Author is good at explaining tough Economic principles September 11, 2008
Format:Paperback
I'm new to Economics and have done very well in the class so far because the book does such a good job explaining complex economic principles. My Professor follows the book exactly. He even uses the slides provided by the publisher. The student section the publisher provides is awesome too. It has flashcards, practice tests, powerpoint slides, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised. August 29, 2008
By Donna
Format:Paperback
One doesn't often come across a textbook that is as well written as this. I was able to understand the material; it presented everything clearly. The language/voice used was engaging, humorous, and easy to understand. I wish more textbooks were like this one. I give it an A.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Textbook April 19, 2008
Format:Paperback
This is one of the clearest--and certainly the most interesting--college textbooks I've ever had! I'm an older student returning to school and had to take econ as a prerequisite for an MBA program. I wasn't looking forward to it--tried it once in college years ago and dropped it because both book and class were so boring! I love this class (online, so no professor even!) and look forward to doing the reading each week. My school uses a "customized" version with with only about 2/3 of the chapters, and I'm buying the entire book so I can read the rest of it. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Shipping, Item as Described January 31, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think this book provides as the book title says, the "Essentials of Economics." It has very detailed information on various economic topics like supply and demand, GDP, etc. I use this book a lot for discussions with friends and families. I recommend to anyone that wants to find out more about the US economy.

I used this book for my Economy class in undergraduate school. The book helped me so much through the class because i used it as a reinforcement to what I learned from lecture. It made the class so much easier.

I ordered the paper back because fashioning it into a weapon is the least problematic. 3 more volumes and I'll be safe from the man child that lives in my basement.
