Not worth the money or class October 5, 2010
In this economy, one would expect the economic apologists to work hard at restoring their name. This book fails. Don't buy it, and if a professor is using this book, find another class. This book has typos, poor questions, poor descriptions, will introduce theories and ideas that won't be explained for four chapters. I was amazed to find that it was so lazy to include the WRONG ANSWERS because between this edition and the last they didn't update the answer key. This is the first textbook I've ever picked up where it doesn't answer questions, and I don't feel like I came away with answers or understanding. Instead it makes you have more questions, and gives you the wrong answer.
The added value of the so-called e-book is laughable, and incorrect. You cannot download it to anything, all it is is the content of the book on a webpage. It is not a pdf, or in epub format or anything of the sort that could be used on a Kindle or nook or other ereader. And the "tegritry" segment for the multimedia part of any recorded lecture costs a SEPARATE serial NOT INCLUDED HERE, something you have to PAY MORE for.
Avoid this book. I didn't know what I was getting into, but this one is a prime example of the sellers trying to do the least amount of work for a large payoff. Don't fall for it. If you have to use this book, split the cost of the book with someone or two others, somehow print off or save the "ebook", and hold on. This book is poor, poor, poor. Not worth your money.
