"This book is written to help and understand the economics. We can understand how economics plays an important role in everyone's life, how we can learn tactics about overcoming conflicts in finance. This book teaches us to know well about managing the financial resources, multiplying the fund without taking too risk and reducing the financial needs.There are three goals to master the skills of the student. They are understanding and solving economic matters, clearing the mind and makes to focus on the clear structure on economics, attracting the people for resources and by using the resources building the great economical empire in the world. This edition of the book reduces the error of the previous editions and adds extra information to make the contents crystal clear which helps the students to understand easily."

Pretty good textbook. September 28, 2011

Microeconomics sounded like it would be an extremely tough course. It was, but this book (and a tutor) will assist you in learning this complicated course. It will teach you economics from a micro-level perspective. Just be careful, there is another book called macroeconomics with the same authors and same cover. Don't make that expensive mistake like I did.
