Your first lesson in International Economics is to get the international version of this book. It will be softcover, also the 8th edition, and half the price. It will be the same, page for page.

Then take the person of your choice out for a nice dinner. You'll be glad you did.

I had this text for an International Finance course focused mostly on Exchange Rates and Macro Policy Decisions. I thought the authors did a fairly thorough job explaining theory and policy. A fair amount of examples, too. Very light on the math, so if you're looking for something more advanced you might want to look at Obstfeld's other book. Also, I used the web site tools associated with the text. Found that to be okay, with the major flaw that the solutions were not fully explained or referenced to the text. It's a good read, and I think most will find it useful.

Very good cover of fundamentals of international trade and associated monetary issues - currency variations, risks, etc. Good description of mechanisms in human behavour terms in clear English with more technical maths separated into appendices at end of chapters.
The MyEconLab testing is good too as it focuses reader on practical issues that need to be understood to get on top of the material.

International Economics by Krugman and Obstfeld is certainy the basics book in the area. Basics, however, does not mean easy. It provides the fundamental of trade and international monetary economics in a way that prepares students for more advanced courses.

I used this book for my international economics and international finance classes at UC Berkeley. This book covers the concepts of introductory international economics very well. I enjoyed reading it very much.

Parts of it are quite well written and explained such as money supply and its effects on rates. A good read for anyone interested in FX.
