Format: Paperback
Holcombe's book is readable and good for developing clarity about how public administrators and the government generally perceives the market economy and its usefulness to society. Public Sector Economics is a good text for understanding how the market economy works in the United States, along with the corresponding needs and pitfalls. Holcombe's definitions are nicely illustrated with relevant and sometimes complex examples. It is not necessary to be versed in this genre-or even in agreement with its perspectives- to find this text helpful and enlightening. On the other hand, know that it is a graduate level study and may not be the best guide for someone with less than college level reading or minimal critical thinking skills.

Not a very well written book. The grammar is poorly structure and twist its words by takes a longer route explaining the economics concepts. Do not buy this book unless you want to spend a lot of time deciphering what the book is trying to say. .

the book looks like a cheap photocopy, cover is thin, picture is blurry, and the inside is cheap paper and econo black and white printing. Illegal? Who cares, the contents are crap and destined for the recycle bin no matter what its printed on.
