I needed to buy this book for a microeconomics class at my college. The book, like many textbooks, is quite boring and does not use examples that students our age can relate to. Being based on economics, I think it would have been in the best interest of these authors to think about who they were marketing this book to before writing it. I don't have much fun reading this book and I am distracted at times, but all in all, it gets the points across if you have the patience to actually read the book.
I'm taking Microeconomics this semester and needed the book. It is easy to understand and the examples are very helpful. The book is modern and has helped me do well in my class.
I bought this book for my Microeconomics course. I like it a lot because it's very modern. It uses good examples that I can relate to my every day life and the world around me.
Taking Micro Econ and need to get this book. Not hard to understand, but the writing is a bit confusing for me, many dependent clauses. The examples are good, helps you to understand the topic as the book use modern examples.
I am taking Mircoeconomics this semester, so I had to buy this book. I am sure the book is great, since it is recommedend by my university. I am sure it will be very helpful this semester. It looks easy to read, which is great!
