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."

Buy an earlier edition! This is literally the same thing as Macro by Mankiw 3rd - 6th edition. Way too expensive.

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.

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.
