Great Book! September 27, 2011

I'm an Econ student at Western Kentucky University, and I must say that this book has been great. The author really knows what he's talking about and it shows. The material is presented in a way that is easier to understand than most econ texts. Some books in our field are a nightmare, this one is a breath of fresh air.
