With its clear and engaging writing style, PRINCIPLES OF MICROECONOMICS, Seventh Edition, continues to be one of the most popular books on economics available today. Mankiw emphasizes material that you are likely to find interesting about the economy (particularly if you are studying economics for the first time), including real-life scenarios, useful facts, and the many ways economic concepts play a role in the decisions you make every day.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the reasons why we adopted the Mankiw text was because of its relevant concepts that students could really relate to. I would say to continue with this trend, and also be sure to use examples that relate to the current economic conditions that make sense to a beginner economics student."

"I have used Mankiw for several years, across at least 3 or 4 of its editions. I like the writing in the book--it's clear and exposits the ideas effectively. It covers topics that I want to cover, mostly in the order that I like to cover them. It's at the appropriate level for our students--not too difficult but not superficial either. I also like the fact that this book is very closely integrated with the Aplia system, which I believe is an important learning tool."

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy an earlier edition! This is literally the same ... October 10, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Buy an earlier edition! This is literally the same thing as Macro by Mankiw 3rd - 6th edition. Way too expensive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling and Offensive, Inaccurate and Deluded. May 19, 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mankiw is a hardcore conservative economist and has no problem inserting elitist opinion in with economic facts and theories. I found this textbook offensive and inaccurate. At best, the author is uninformed. At worst, he is deliberately deluding you with his own warped political opinion and doing so by underhandedly putting his opinions into an introductory textbook so you don't have the tools yet to disagree with him. I would never use this in an econ class, unless you're forced to. Maybe not even then.

If you don't believe me, go look at his two page rant on minimum wage and labor laws and then go look up the corresponding statistics on the Bureau of Labor Statistics website and see if I'm not being serious when I tell you that he is either uninformed or blatantly lying. This textbooks is terrible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Econ Book! August 8, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mackiw is a great author and teacher of econ. He almost makes the discipline look simple in nature. Great real world examples and the continuing use of the ice cream shop example makes econ very accessible to people who are learning econ for the first time. Great book and the soft cover make for a lighter book that is easier to lug around.

Format:Loose Leaf|Verified Purchase
When I original bought this item it never said anything about it being loose leaf, with that being said it is s***ty and I wouldn't buy it. It's going to rip apart and isn't worth the time or money.

I love this one. It's not my favorite topic, but this book makes it very easy to understand. The graphs are very easy to follow and the summaries at the end are great.
