About the Author

Campbell R. McConnell earned his Ph.D. from the University of Iowa after receiving degrees from Cornell College and the University of Illinois. He taught at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 1953 until his retirement in 1990. He is also coauthor of Contemporary Labor Economics, Seventh edition, and Essentials of Economics, First edition (both The McGraw-Hill Companies), and has edited readers for the principles and labor economics courses. He is a recipient of both the University of Nebraska Distinguished Teaching Award and the James A. Lake Academic Freedom Award, and is past-president of the Midwest Economics Association. Professor McConnell was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Cornell College in 1973 and received its Distinguished Achievement Award in 1994.

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.

Stanley L. Brue did his undergraduate work at Augustana College (South Dakota) and received its Distinguished Achievement Award in 1991. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. He is a professor at Pacific Lutheran University, where he has been honored as a recipient of the Burlington Northern Faculty Achievement Award.

THIS BOOK DOES NOT COME WITH A CONNECT PLUS ACCESS CODE. IF YOU NEED IT, PLEASE LOOK FOR ANOTHER THAT SAYS IT COMES WITH IT.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback
Its a pretty good book. I think many of the negative reviews are coming from the fact that this edition didn't come with some kind of code, but I didn't need that for my Macroeconomics class, so this review strictly has to do with the material in the book. It's pretty easy to read, and helps the reader see how intuitive the concepts really are. It can feel a bit draggy sometimes, but I'd say its better to drag than to go too fast with the material. Its pretty well organized, and the author likes to give examples very frequently relating to the concepts (sometimes even when the concept is so intuitive that an example really isn't needed, which is why I feel it can drag sometimes. Again its probably better to do this, than to just assume the reader got the information right away.) One little thing that can get slightly annoying: the author constantly refers to graphs and models that are on the next page. Yeah, I know flipping one page isn't hard, but constantly going between the page with the graph and the page with the actual information about the graph can get a bit irritating. Seriously, this crisis appears in like every chapter lol. As for bias I haven't really noticed much. If you're of the Austrian school of thought you may disagree with some of the roles of government as presented in the text, but I don't think that's necessarily a bias of the author, rather, I think it's just him making sure he includes everything in the text. Overall though, I don't think you can go wrong with this book.

Format: Paperback
This was a required textbook for my macroeconomics course in college. The professor did an excellent job teaching the material, so that we barely used this textbook. I did read it before the test however, and I was extremely impressed. The book was beautifully written, in my opinion. The book had a conversational tone, was very clear, and very easy reading.

While the professor did a great job teaching, there were some parts that he either skipped or glossed over. I turned to the book for a more thorough understanding, and I was not disappointed.

I was extremely mystified by the many negative reviews. I suppose that macroeconomics is not everyones cup of tea, but that's not the book's fault. Don't give the book a negative rating just because you don't like the subject matter. Blame the college, instead, for making this a required course for whatever major you're in.

With that being said, this book was quite expensive, as were all the other textbooks that I bought for the other classes as well.
