Review

"I think it is more reader friendly than other texts. In addition, it uses both numeric and/or graphical examples, which is very useful for the students."

"We used to use Case and Fair's text. Mankiw seems to be a better text because it actually follows through with giving applications to what he includes in the book. For example, there is much better material in Mankiw about consumer surplus, producer surplus, government policies and interventions in the market."

"Very student friendly text. Makes economics easy to understand. Some of the other texts would take a lot of reading to explain an idea."

More About the Author

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. His published articles have appeared in academic journals, such as the "American Economic Review", "Journal of Political Economy", and "Quarterly Journal of Economics", and in more widely accessible forums, such as "The New York Times", "The Washington Post", "The Wall Street Journal", and "Fortune".

He has written two popular textbooks--the intermediate-level textbook Macroeconomics (Worth Publishers) and the introductory textbook Principles of Economics (South-Western/Thomson). Principles of Economics has sold over a million copies and has been translated into twenty languages.

In addition to his teaching, research, and writing, Professor Mankiw has been a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, an adviser to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Congressional Budget Office, and a member of the ETS test development committee for the advanced placement exam in economics. From 2003 to 2005 he served as Chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers.

This book makes Economics extremely accessible -it was the first textbook I've ever encountered that was actually a "good read." Anyone taking an Intro Macroeconomics class should have a copy of this book (even if the course textbook is different). Extremely well written and clear.

Format: Paperback
Very easy to read with lots of explanatory diagrams. Suitable for undergraduate studies or for students who are totally new to economics.
The text is partnered by a web-site which contains extra learning materials and multiple choice practice questions. Also, very handy.

I will start out by saying that I love Mankiw's textbooks. They are extremely easy to read and logically broken up into chapters. I have both the microeconomics and macroeconomics textbooks. The microeconomics textbook was a complete replacement for the course I took. You didn't even have to go to lecture but that may be deoendent on a course by course basis. On the other hand, the macroeconomics book is lacking a few topics that were gone over in lecture for my macroeconomics textbook. The primary missing aspects are mathematical analysis involving fiscal policy and monetary policy. Overall though, this is a good textbook. It is of the same quality that I would expect from Mankiw. The chapters aren't overfilled with text and are nicely complemented by graphical representations as well as side notes and things of that nature. You need to buy this textbook in two cases: your introductory macroeconomics course requires it or you aren't understanding macroeconomics in which case this text offers a clear explanation.

Economics is a difficult subject for many people with many concepts and ideas and many of them being hard to grasp and understand. Mankiw does a fantastic job making difficult concepts easy to understand. He uses simple yet effective examples to relate concepts to things students understand. He always uses relevant information and data when explaining and proving points. This textbook, (and of course also with a good teacher), will make you feel like an economics pro!

This is a great textbook for an undergraduate intro to macroeconomics course. It is well written and easy to follow. Mankiw really knows his stuff. I would recommend this book for any intro to macroeconomics course.

I'm not sure you can really make macroeconomics too exciting, but this is a decent book as far as textbooks go.

Principles of Macroeconomics is a fairly clear introduction to macroeconomics. The author tries to give a balanced presentation of principles. I learned a lot from the book in conjunction with an excellent instructor.
