Format: Hardcover
This book is quite hard to read and understand. The complexity of the subject by itself makes it hard to grasp some of the concepts introduced in this book, which therefore demand a well-written book, to clarify. I would have liked more numerical examples, and less derived talk, also the chapters are quite long and take a while to get through.

"International Economics" does and excellent job explaining complicated models in a conversational voice that is easy to understand. There are a lot of textbooks out there that are only as good as the professor can teach them- this is one of those books that can teach you by itself. And this is one of those textbooks I'll be buying to keep on my bookshelf in case I need a quick reference.

Also, if you pay enough attention, there are a more than a few puns scattered around. Check out the side section on page 248 about banana trade called "Do Trade Preferences Have Appeal?". I've counted at least five.

This book showed me the concepts and talked about all of the topics that I needed in order to stay afloat in my class; however, I don't have an in-depth economics background so I often had to look up supplemental materials in order to learn practical applications for the material.
