This book was required reading for an economics class, so I was forced to purchase. McGraw-Hill should be embarrassed printing a book of such poor quality. The equations lack quality explanations and the general text sections are written so poorly it is hard to follow the author's thought process. It appears the authors are attempting to use "big" words and cliches that they do not understand, which leaves the reader wondering what was meant by the sentences. Examples were provided to explain a theory, but never identify how it connects. It is also apparent that there are several authors as the writing style changes frequently. I had to conduct extensive online research just to understand the concepts being presented, before I conducted my research to complete the assignments. This book was a waste of my time and I risked my GPA on this material. I am thankful I had a good instructor. If you are required to purchase this for a course, look now for other material to help you through the course, and good luck to you. If you are searching for a text book to teach economics please do the students a favor and find another source!
