I adopted this text because it is one of the best that I have found for this class. It expresses the basic concepts of both microeconomics and macroeconomics in simple concise terms.

I find this text to be very useful and would recommend it to other faculty. After 27 years of using this text, I find it to be very fair in covering the material; the instructor's manual/ test bank, study guide, and computerized test bank prove very helpful to me and my adjunct faculty.

I enjoyed the writing style. The presentation is clear, accurate, without being too dry, wordy or "overdone." It is suitable for students at all levels, ages, and from various disciplines.
