'The McKenzie/Lee text is the best book in its field, both for coverage and readability. The text is an excellent example of how microeconomic analysis can be applied to real world managerial decisions. The writing style will delight students and make the instructor's interaction with students much richer.' Barry Keating, University of Notre Dame

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jaewoo Kim VINE VOICE on August 12, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a well written book catered specifically to MBA students. But it is definitely watered-down. This is definitely an MicroEconomics 101 level book and involves nothing more than utilizing basic arithematic. If you want a quantatitively rigorous (Calculus and stats) Microeconomics text book that has many mathematical formulas, derivatives, and problems, then this book is does not fit that bill. If you are looking for Microeconomics Light, then this book is as good as any.

My main problem with this book is its lack of quantitative analysis problems and their solutions. Almost every problem at the end of each chapter is conceptual and involves no mathematical calculations. I also think this book can use a CD with Excel spreadsheets and examples on how we can use data to calculate where MC=MR based on P vs Q and VC vs Q data, for example.

But that would mean doing something quantitative which this book seems to avoid at all costs.

The best part of this book is its extremely well crafted graphs and their explanations. I would say they are worth the price of this book. If you can understand the graphs and their explanations, you have understood most of the contents of this book.

I would give this book 3.5 stars. It does a great job of explaining microeconomics concepts, but without the rigorous mathematical explanations that may baffle some readers. Nevertheless, its strength also hinders it from becoming a more rigorous and thought provoking book.

This book gives me excellent ideas to be used by me as modern manager. Both basic funda and today's problems of managerial economics are very well explained. Though I am not a manager of modern days, I am able to understand the themes given in the book.
Service delivery by amazon and its partners are excellent.
