Simple reading and learning experience.
Carol JeanLouis
The book stands by itself and can be read, understood and learned from without any additional help which is in my mind the main requirement for a core textbook.

Prof. Jones who teaches a class based on this book at the Stanford GSB has written an exceptional text. It's a surprisingly easy read while always conveying a very broad set of ideas at sufficient depth. The book stands by itself and can be read, understood and learned from without any additional help which is in my mind the main requirement for a core textbook.

The only complaint that I can mention if any (if this is a complaint) is that the revisions are too frequent (almost 1+ a year), which for a book in this price range, is a lot. Maybe some form of electronic resource to provide updates would be better than having students lose the ability to buy a used book because of the frequent and significant revisions. That said, the financial crisis and recent economic events have changed the world a lot and I can see why the book was rewritten as a result.

Excellent text, highly recommended.

This macroeconomics text provides a lucid, well-presented overview of Macroeconomics. The text uses provocative questions to engage the reader and keep him/her engagedly reading to discover the answer to these important questions. The descriptions are clear, the exercises are helpful, and the figures and charts illuminating. An excellently designed vehicle for delivering ideas and information.

This is a great reference book for macroeconomics. I'm holding on it for when ever I need to look back at something for another class. It is easy to read and explains the concepts well. A soild textbook that can stand on its own as a basic reference.

I love this textbook! It covers topics relevant to today such as the great recession, great depression, stagflation of the 70/80's, and teaches the student how to approach these details with macroeconomic fundamentals. The textbook is completely factual, and the author does a great job of keeping his biases out of the textbook, and instead presenting what economic research and empirical data has shown us economists. He mentions other famous economists a lot, as well as some of the old theories that have been tossed out by new ones. One thing is to learn about models and such, but another is to learn about the history and evolution of modern macroeconomics. A wonderful textbook.

Great book, makes everything easy to understand and the graphs helps when studying the Solow Model. The vocabulary is highlighted and the definition comes right after it.

Too hard for undergrads, too easy for grad students. Not a very good textbook overall. For undergraduate students, I recommend mankiw's book instead of this one.

Used it for my class, there was another more expensive book with the financial crisis update at the time but you can get by without it in this one.
