This is really a great text book that walks through some incredibly intuitive examples. I've always thought economics is a fairly intuitive subject when taught correctly, and this book essentially makes it that you could learn microeconomics on your own. The complexity builds as the chapters go on, but you really get a grounding in the basics that makes it much easier as the chapters go along. Do the exercises along the way and you'll be golden. I'm not the biggest Krugman fan in the world, but this is the best economics text book I've ever used.

The material is clearly written, intuitive and easy to follow. An excellent introduction to the topic of Microeconomics. I purchased the Macro edition after seeing how well this text was written. The two are an excellent addition to my personal library.

I used this book in my undergrad and again in a first course in a Masters and is very useful for anyone starting in the Economics world. Krugman uses very clear examples. Just remember that some comments are a little biased toward the importance of government in the economy, but nothing that will make me not recommend it.

I thought it was very comprehensive and straight-to-the-point, which I appreciated. It was a great complimentary read to my professor's lectures, and it really helped me study the concepts we went over in class. Honestly, if I had the money, I would have bought it rather than rented it.

Personally, I thought the quality was perfectly fine, it seems to be the same quality as a regular book, without the $200+ cost of having a hard cover. I wish more books came in loose left as this book has. This is my first loose leaf book and certainly will not be my last as long as other publishers offer them. Maybe economic books are offered in loose leaf because the publisher knows us economic students understand " opportunity cost..."

Cheaper books, offer the same value as the more expensive ones, however, one does have to put in binder rings for those books, or use a standard binder. If you are in college, you better be able to do this much. ;)

I just completed my microeconomics and although I did enjoy this book and the stories in it, having videos to teach how to make the requires graphics is essential when taking exams. Thank goodness for Salman Khan who created Khan Academy. If you are taking a micro or macro economics class, you will want to look at the videos on Khan Academy along with this book to practice making Production Possibilities Curves (PPC), Demand and Supply (D&S) graphs, Floors and Ceiling, Effect of Taxes (Buyer/Supplier), Marginal Cost (MC), Marginal Benefit (MB), Consumer and Producer Surplus, Short and Long Run Cost, Perfectly Competitive Product Market Structure, Imperfectly Competitive Product Market Structure (Monopolistically Competitive, Pure Monopoly), External Costs and Benefits, Marginal Utility/Total Utility, etc...

Another great Book from beloved and behated ( :) ) prof Krugman. Solid .. Analytical ... Conceptual work from Prof and his wife.
And when people accuse him of being leftist it is clear they are wrong if they read his microeconomics book.
He is someone who is against rent seeking and proponent of most efficient resource utility with human touch.

Looseleaf is terrible cuz you cannot return it to campus bookstores and god forbid you loose just one page or get it out of order. But itz a cheaper alternative to a heavy book and you can pull out just the section of pages you need rather than carrying around the whole book!

I ended up dropping the class I needed this for but when I was in it, this book helped more than the professor (who was a good professor)! I recommend. It uses a lot of examples to explain the concepts.
