For someone like me, who is coming from a Information Technology Background and knows nothing about Economics, this book is the best that you could ask for. It's simple and precise with lots of real life examples that you can relate-to to understand the global aggregate economic principles.

I've suggested this book to few others who were not academics and just wanted to know basic economics and they loved it. That's the success of this book - where it reaches people from different domains and everyone could relate to it's examples. If you're slightly interested in global economics and what to know what GDP, CPI, Inflation, Monetary and Fiscal Policies mean, this is your book.

I wish all econ professors subscribe this book as their main course material. Be sure to follow the author's blog (Tyler Cowen), which is as insightful and realistic as this book. I wish my micro economics course suggested these authors' microeconomics version (Modern Principles: Microeconomics). I bet that's as interesting as this one.

Even if my professor hadn't done a great job of explaining the concepts of Macroeconomics, this book would have given me an 'A' in the class. The person sitting next to me never bothered to take notes, because the book explained the concepts covered better than notes ever could. The diagrams and explanatory text were very helpful and informative. We used this book as our main text in an intermediate Macro course and I'll probably be referencing it again in the coming semesters.

This Macroeconomics book is AWESOME. It is wonderfully written and it is all "real life" examples. This makes it more enjoyable to read and very easy to learn the material. I recommend this book and this seller.
