Overview

In writing this textbook, Mankiw has tried to put himself in the position of someone seeing economics for the first time. The author's conversational writing style is superb for presenting the politics and science of economic theories to tomorrow's decision-makers. Because Mankiw wrote it for the students, the book stands out among all other principles texts by encouraging students to apply an economic way of thinking in their daily lives. Receiving such a praise as "perhaps the best ever" textbook in economic principles, it's no wonder Mankiw's prize project has quickly become one of the most successful books ever to be published in the college marketplace.

    Not Recommended

    The book was delivered in the condition which was described- good but used with some wear to the cover and was delivered by Thriftbooks which I later found out was Yankee Clipper's parent company. However, the extremely slow shipping was a major disappointment. I understand that they have 14 days to deliver the book with standard domestic shipping, however, I would expect the book (coming from Connecticut to New York City) to take less than 10 days to be delivered. Due to the slow shipping I would not recommend this seller to anyone else and would recommend using other companies.
