great textbook March 15, 2011
Honestly, I don't give many books 5 stars, nor do I give many glowing reviews, but Gwartney really did an outstanding job putting this book together. The format is friendly, the data is accurate. It is readable and easy to understand. The shipping of the book was excellent and I got it in time. Thanks a lot.
