Unlike other macroeconomics texts, this book offers a through treatment of all the primary theories in macroeconomics, classical, Keynesian, monetarist, neo-Keynesian, real business cycles, etc, as well as a lengthy discussion of monetary policy. It does not spend any time on introducing the concepts of supply and demand and other basic economic principles. I used this book in an intermediate macro class and found the explanations very clear. It is also up to date and contains many sidenotes about current events/economic debates.
