About the Author

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.

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 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.

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. Professor Brue has also received the national Leavey Award for excellence in economic education. He has served as national president and chair of the Board of Trustees of Omicron Delta Epsilon International Economics Honorary.

Format: Paperback
I read the first hundred pages but wasn't satisfied with the content. Even though this book is the 19th edition there is a lot of imprecise wording going on, even regarding issues where unambiguity would be crucial for understanding... Because of my basic knowledgeability on the topic I was able to spot those imprecisions, but I can definitely imagine someone totally blank on economics to get confused quickly, including myself later on into the book. Especially the graphs are a mess. Also, the book is highly repetitive on some concepts, exceeding the extent of repetitiveness necessary for clarification purposes, the revisions themselves being way too wordy each time. Of the little over 100 pages I read, maybe half of it was repetition and pictures. I will look for another textbook.

P.S. I feel that most of the positive reviews don't even mention the content but are about the physical condition of the copy received, speed of delivery etc.

I really enjoyed this textbook. I took an online course that only covered about half the book, but I enjoyed it so much that I read the entire book. The book has many helpful diagrams and includes boxes that give global context to the topics discussed.

Its a little confusing the way this book is written. Microeconomic has a lot of nuances with its material. I would not feel that if they made enough distinction between those nuances. however the book is pretty good overall.

If you purchase a pass for the Connect product (which can be purchased alone), the digital version of the book is included. Renting the hard copy of the book was a waste of money.

All of the text is there but this certainly isn't layed out as it is in the print version. I like e textbooks but this one isn't up to par.

I love this book and I am so glad I rented it from Amazon. I needed it for an intro-level micro-economics class I am taking and it was exactly what I needed. The only minor problems are that it is very heavy to carry around(there is not much that can be done about this, but you should know about it if you are planning to buy it), and there are not many examples on how to do the problems. It is more just explanations in words and then at the end of the chapters there are practice problems. All in all it is a good book, and I would recommend it to any college student who is taking a microeconomics class. This is really the only reason that you would buy this book.

This book is very well written and the concepts are shown very clear. This book goes well with lectures online as it is organized very well. There are some small issues however... there are no example problems, it tells you the concept and that's it. Also answers to the back questions are not in the book, you need to search them online to find them.
