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 intriguing students to apply an economic way of thinking in their daily lives. Receiving such 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.

Less then unhappy with this book and my experience with it. I Ordered a bound copy and got a loose leaf copy. The book doesn't really explain anything. For someone who has no knowledge of economics to purchase this book for understanding is very difficult. It speaks in technical terms with calculations that make no sense and it doesn't explain how those determinations were made or the proper way to read the charts/graphs or give an understanding as to what they represent. I would not recommend this book to any one who wants to understand economics. I have learned more from google with a better sense of understanding. Call before you rent to ensure you are going to get the item rented. Return labels are not under the account tabs but under manage your account under the account tab. Nothing Is explained so I wish you luck with trying to figure it out.
