Summary

For instructors who prefer less coverage of micro topics than is offered in Mankiw's highly acclaimed textbook Principles of Macroeconomics, Mankiw now provides an excellent resource in this briefer version. Mankiw's principles texts have received such praise as "perhaps the best ever" coverage 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. 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 texts by intriguing students to apply an economic way of thinking in their daily lives.
