Book Description

McConnell, Brue, and Flynn’s Economics: Principles, Problems, and Policies is the #1 Principles of Economics textbook in the world. It continues to be innovative while teaching students in a clear, unbiased way. The 19th Edition builds upon the tradition of leadership by sticking to 3 main goals: Help the beginning student master the principles essential for understanding the economizing problem, specific economic issues, and the policy alternatives; help the student understand and apply the economic perspective and reason accurately and objectively about economic matters; and promote a lasting student interest in economics and the economy.

About the Author

Sean is an assistant professor of economics at Scripps College in Claremont, California. He is the author of the international best seller "Economics for Dummies" as well as the coauthor, along with Campbell McConnell and Stanley Brue, of the world's best-selling college economics textbook, "Economics: Principles, Problems, and Policies".

An avid martial artist, Sean is a former Aikido national champion and has coached five of his students to U.S. national aikido titles.

A recurring commentator on FOX Business, ABC News, and NPR, Sean holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Southern California and a Ph.D. in economics from U.C. Berkeley, where he completed his dissertation under the supervision of Nobel Laureate George Akerlof.

Sean's research focuses on the often puzzling and seemingly irrational behavior of stock market investors, but he's also investigated topics as wide-ranging as the factors that affect customer tipping behavior at restaurants and why you see a lot of unionized workers only in certain industries.

1.0 out of 5 stars many editions / versions--be very careful when buying August 10, 2012
The 19th edition of this popular economics textbook is very expensive, comes in many different editions and versions, and may or may not include the McGraw-Hill connect code. Be very careful that you order EXACTLY the version to be used in your class (including the connect code if necessary). Once you have paid your money, neither Amazon nor McGraw-Hill will be very helpful if you got the wrong book.

I give this book 1 star for excessive cost, poor customer service, and a (deliberate?) confusing array of editions and versions. It may be required for a particular course, but it is not a "keeper" that you will refer to over the years. For that get Samuelson or Heilbroner.

There are at least three editions--US, Global, and Asian. In all three, the text, graphics, and tables are nearly identical, but the chapter numbers, chapter titles, and pages are organized differently. (I have personally used only the Global edition--I have carefully compared my edition to the US edition--I have not personally seen the Asian edition.) If you don't have the same edition as your instructor, when your instructor says, "read pages 200 to 250 for the exam," you will be lost.

For each regional edition, there are at least three versions--Economics, which has 39 chapters, Microeconomics, which has a reduced subset of 25 chapters (general econ and MICRO view), and Macroeconomics, which has only 22 chapters (general econ and MACRO view). Though the chapter topics correspond, and the text is nearly identical, the chapter and page NUMBERING is different in the different versions.

Your instructor MAY NOT KNOW that there are so many permutations of this text.

1.0 out of 5 stars DOES NOT COME WITH MCGRAW HILL CONNECT CODE! June 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am writing this review to help others out there who are thinking about purchasing this book. Let it be known that, although this book costs an outrageous $115.00, it DOES NOT come with the code needed for the online portion of assignments located on McGraw Hill's Connect website. I contacted McGraw Hill and they told me Amazon buys codes in bulk and gives them to people who buy the book. I contacted Amazon, they told me that because it doesn't say anywhere specifically that it HAS a code, then it does NOT have one. So I had to purchase a code separately from McGraw Hill for $15.00, which led to hours on the phone with Customer Service because they never sent me the code and were very hesitant to issue me "another" one. Upon finally gaining access to the McGraw Hill Connect website, my browser informs me that it is a potentially risky and insecure website and I have to give it permission to load. Get your act together McGraw Hill, for all the money you are stealing from your customers this book should be bound in gold, but at the very least I'd appreciate some customer service.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hate college book prices, hate e-reader. December 9, 2013
By Malachi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Learning from a screen is a mistake and the whole school book process is a racket. Get a book, get a used book, better yet, get a used book and share it with a classmate.

I didn't like the layout of the text at first but I've gotten used to it. I think it's too "busy" but that's just me.
They use interesting examples in the side notes to explain things further. I'm only the third chapter in, but so far the concepts are fairly easy to grasp. The homework I have to do on their Connect program is a nice refresher and helps drill in some of the concepts better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Macroeconomics February 1, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed this textbook for my macroeconomics class in the Fall. It was good for the time that I had it. Sometimes it could drag on in the chapters, but for the most time it was useful in describing key information for the class.

Did not read that I need the economics book instead of macroeconomics. Double check the tittle and not the image.
