“The major concepts of macroeconomics are broken down with wit, verve, and clarity in this excellent follow-up to The Cartoon Introduction to Economics: Vol. 1: Microeconomics . . . This clever, lucid, and lighthearted book is a godsend to anyone who needs a simple but complete primer on the ins and outs of economics.” ―Publishers Weekly
“People don't usually chuckle over unemployment, inflation, and recessions. But they'll get plenty of laughs out of this book--and a good introduction to macro too.” ―Eric Maskin, Nobel Laureate in Economics
“If you don't want to cry about the state of the economy, why not laugh instead? This book is an ideal introduction to macroeconomics for anybody who thinks they ought to understand what's happening around them but is put off by dense text and economics jargon.” ―Diane Coyle, author of The Economics of Enough
“Bauman [has] an insightful philosophical bent and the natural inclinations of an educator, in the best sense of that term.” ―MarginalRevolution.com

One major surprise to me is how this macro book discusses development, trade, poverty and the environment. I think of these as micro topics, but they seem do just fine here.
The book is organized into three parts: A single economy (unemployment, money, inflation, gdp and government), international trade (trade & technology, class view of trade, complications, foreign aid and foreign currencies) and global macro (business cycles, poverty, environment and aging). I found the organization to be intuitive and the discussions well-balanced and thorough.
I think these books are really great for combining words with illustrations (and humor), as they reinforce each other to help get the point across.
Bottom line: If you're interested in economics but have fears (or bad memories) of too much math and obscure language, then read these books! I give this one FIVE STARS for making macro great again!
