5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent February 10, 2010
I bought this text for self study. This book is clearly written so that a self-learner can learn intermediate macroeconomics. I particularly like the appendix that follows the chapter on IS-LM. The problems in both the workbook and the textbook allow me to think deeply about the concepts.

The text does not have any answers at the back of the text.

Every morning for the past semester, I have worked my way through this text. I find the text easy reading and enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Class was terrible, book was GREAT August 15, 2010
By fersti
The topic is a hard if you are not a math wiz. I honestly had a lot of trouble with Micro economics because of the terrible book, but thought this book was outstanding in explaining the topic. I did well in this class not because the professor was any good, but because this book had great examples, explained everything in great detail and was to the point. Yes, i need the dumbed down version...this is a basics book. I cant stand ordering a basics book, only to have it be completely over my head. This def did its job. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars totally new April 2, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As it described --totally new. The cover looks a bit old, maybe that is the original design of the product. After all, I don't care about the cover. No marks at all--this matters to me a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, Prefer Mankiw January 4, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is good. It contains loads of historical charts, graphs and tables.
However although I can describe accurately I preferred the Mankiw book. I can't really say why, but I though Mankiw was an easier read. This does not mean that this book is bad, in fact it is quite good.
