Gruber uses relevant and concise examples to illustrate points and inserts some humor to keep the read a little easier.
As another reviewer noted, this text can ramble on a bit much at times, but intelligent skimming through use of subtitles and keywords can avoid that. The problems are good, but at times can be more confusing than necessary.
- Discussion questions had a few differences (Re-arranged, numbers changed slightly, ect)
- Charts and figures in the 3rd edition had more recent information (especially relevant in chapters 21-25)
- Chapter on Social Security had another (small) section in it.
If you need this textbook for a class but do not need the discussion questions, I would recommend this textbook over the newer one. There is virtually no difference between the two. If you need the updated charts and graphs from the newer edition, most of them are available in the PowerPoint presentations on the publisher's website.

This is a very good book for understanding the policy aspects of public finance. It is written in a way that makes it interesting and not too dry (mostly), for non finance people.Published on February 11, 2014 by josho
