There were some complaints about the book being too basic and giving only a superficial treatment to the material, which I think is reasonable criticism. There are not a lot of numerical examples. The exercises at the end of each chapter are more theory-based rather than being focused on the application of math. But the title of the book is "Policy and Practice" and the book lives up to the title. That is its strength: There are a loads of real-world examples that illustrate the theories and concepts covered in the book and allow you to think about them from a public policy perspective.
So if taking a course that requires this book, expect an easier-but-informative/engaging read than the typical, more technical economics books (which, if you are majoring in economics or studying it at a graduate level, you'll have plenty of chances to dive into). If you're a lay reader that just wants to learn about macroeconomics at a slightly-beyond-introductory level, this book might be perfect for that.
