Good book, well written and easy to understand.

When I think about how textbooks are supposed to be, I think of Mankiw's books.

I bought this textbook for my macroecon class. It's a very nice textbook. Mankiw , as usual, did a very good job. I really love the material in the book. But I returned this book after the first week! After comparing the 7th edition to this one, this edition only has one new chapter. The rest of the book is pretty much the same to the 7th edition's. The 8th may have a little extra homework problems.

Overall a decently written textbook, although rather wordy at times. It explains the concepts well, as did the earlier versions, too. It is disappointing that a new edition is launched each year just to make money off college kids.

While I agree with other reviewers about Mankiw's tendency to put out new versions too often, I really like his books! I am almost done with double bachelor degrees, one in economics and the other in agricultural business at Montana State University so I've seen my fair share of econ textbooks. I have to say that Mankiw is my favorite, his books are so well written for understanding concepts. When I think about how textbooks are supposed to be, I think of Mankiw's books. They are supposed to be a valuable resource to supplement lecture and even "teach" concepts...gasp! Something about how he presents concepts helps to bring a new layer of understanding, even if I've worked with the material before. I'm thankful my prof chose this for my macro with calculus class this semester. I guess these books just work really well for my brain!

This is a great book that simplifies economic principles and applies them to current and past economic events. The only drawback is the study guide is required for answers to chapter questions.

Good book, well written and easy to understand. Macro is a tough subject and I'm happy that I used this textbook.

I love this text book because it is so current and to-the-point. The most recent edition is worth it. The chapters contain great examples and are thorough but short enough where you can actually read it all. I especially like the summary and quick review questions at the end. I have been an occasional reader of Mankiw's blog for years and now I'm finally getting to use his text book in Grad school!

Love this book. Very easy to understand, easy to go along with and no long chapters. Some chapters might be 30 pages long, but there are like 3-5 case studies so the actual chapter content is less than 30 pages.

N. Gregory Mankiw is Professor of Economics at Harvard University. As a student, he studied economics at Princeton University and MIT. As a teacher, he has taught macroeconomics, microeconomics, statistics, and principles of economics. He even spent one summer long ago as a sailing instructor on Long Beach Island.

Professor Mankiw is a prolific writer and a regular participant in academic and policy debates. His research includes work on price adjustment, consumer behavior, financial markets, monetary and fiscal policy, and economic growth.
