I'm a beginner to the subject so I wouldn't know if this book was full of misinformation; however, I CAN say it's very easy to read and maneuver through. It's well-written and well-organized and so far, I haven't had any issues understanding what I'm supposed to understand!

The author concentrated on fattening this book with too much useless sentences rather than solid concrete material that will stick to a student's memory. The book is big and wordy. It takes a lot of time to read and understand what the author is trying to conclude. Book is more focused around QUANTITY THAN QUALITY. I have dealt with publications by Pearson, and came to the decisive conclusion that most of their materials are garbage. I really hope schools should heed to this and banned Pearson from their campus.

Simply the worst company, online program, and customer service in the history of companies.

This book is great if you need something to start a fire with and the econ lab site is great if you just feel like being frustrated and sitting on the telephone with the company for a few hours to persuade them that you did in fact purchase their inferior product.

I feel better now.

This was one of the best textbooks I have ever used in a class. The material is clearly explained and makes a very challenging subject easier to understand. The only issue I had was I noticed many typos, which I could easily overlook except that many of them occurred in the section review questions and also in the answer keys. The editor of this edition did a very poor job. Maybe so that they could come out with a new edition and jack up the price...
Other than that it was very well written.

This book was absolutely terrible. I purchased it while taking a class required for continuing professional certs, and I was shocked at how outdated and archaic most of the information is. It was also very dry, and the principles were poorly explained in many areas. Unless you have a professor who tests straight out of the book, save your money - you can find better, more accurate explanations of the material in this book by searching Youtube, or the public forums.

When buying this hardcover book "new" I was under the assumption that it was complete with access code to include EconLab.
The book description on the website should make it clear that it does NOT include access code. Very frustrating.

I used amazon rental for this book. I was impressed. I took this class in summer using this book. Very detailed. Jut be aware that not all chapters cover micro economy. Your professor will pick and choose which chapters apply to your class.
