About the Author

Sean is an assistant professor of economics at Scripps College in Claremont, California. He is the author of the international best seller "Economics for Dummies" as well as the coauthor, along with Campbell McConnell and Stanley Brue, of the world's best-selling college economics textbook, "Economics: Principles, Problems, and Policies".
An avid martial artist, Sean is a former Aikido national champion and has coached five of his students to U.S. national aikido titles.
A recurring commentator on FOX Business, ABC News, and NPR, Sean holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Southern California and a Ph.D. in economics from U.C. Berkeley, where he completed his dissertation under the supervision of Nobel Laureate George Akerlof.
Sean's research focuses on the often puzzling and seemingly irrational behavior of stock market investors, but he's also investigated topics as wide-ranging as the factors that affect customer tipping behavior at restaurants and why you see a lot of unionized workers only in certain industries.

Campbell R. McConnell earned his Ph.D. from the University of Iowa after receiving degrees from Cornell College and the University of Illinois. He taught at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 1953 until his retirement in 1990.

He is a professor at Pacific Lutheran University, where he has been honored as a recipient of the Burlington Northern Faculty Achievement Award.

I am rating this because it this book came to me in a timely manner and in condition as it was described. (Actually a little better than I was expecting). My teacher assigned the Microeconomics book to me but in the 19th edition but told us the 18th was just as good. Go figure Me and a friend of mine got this edition which is the 18th and matched it to my other friend who rented the 19th edition from some place near campus and it was the exact same! The only differences was the cover and the 18th edition had a few long descriptions and a few more examples. I BOUGHT this book for about $25 and my other friend who RENTED the 19th edition paid $80. THE 18TH AND 19TH EDITIONS OF THIS BOOK ARE EXACTLY THE SAME IN ALMOST EVERY ASPECT! If you need the 19th edition get the 18th because it saves you money and you still are getting the information you need.

Great economics text. Economics is not easy to read to begin with but this book is well written and not too painful to get through. But if you are looking for a dumb-ed down economics text this is not for you. It is very comprehensive and not an Economics-Lite text.

I bought this book for a class I had online. I received it fast and without any problems. For me, I understood most everything in the book. There were a few tricky concepts, but if you still don't understand, there are plenty of free online resources you can search for.

Yes I got this for class and yes the class was boring like a class, but the book was fairly well written. It was a teach yourself, online class and the book actually did a good job of teaching me the basics of microeconomics. It covers the basic terms and concepts and provides a lot of comparisons and metaphors in case you know nothing about economics. Luckily, if you do know about economics, all the metaphors and such are in side blocks that you don't have to read unless it is needed.

There i can only be one word to describe this book: Excellent. The material is clearly written and very easy to follow. Lots of examples, so you do not only study the theory but you also know how it applies to real life situations. Graphs and tables make the content easy to understand.

Excellent book on Microeconomics!

Its a little confusing the way this book is written. Microeconomic has a lot of nuances with its material. I would not feel that if they made enough distinction between those nuances. however the book is pretty good overall.

This book is very well written and the concepts are shown very clear. This book goes well with lectures online as it is organized very well. There are some small issues however... there are no example problems, it tells you the concept and that's it. Also answers to the back questions are not in the book, you need to search them online to find them.

I really enjoyed this textbook. I took an online course that only covered about half the book, but I enjoyed it so much that I read the entire book. The book has many helpful diagrams and includes boxes that give global context to the topics discussed.
