    Good introduction

    This book was enjoyable to work with, Stiglitz's writing style is very appealing and encouraging. You should brush up on your intermediate microeconomics skills before working with this book as it assumes you know it well and does not review it. A downside for international students is that half the book is focused on the US system, so half the book may turn out irrelevant to you depending on your study-purpose. One thing in particular that I did not like about the book was that there is comparatively little mathematical and graphical treatments. For an extensive mathematical and graphical ,i.e. analytical, treatment Hyman's book is by far a better choice. I would only use Stiglitz book as a supplement to another more analytical book, such as Hyman's. But for students who have little interest in the mathematical or analytical aspects then this book is great.
