Okay, so economics is not as interactive as an art class or as systematic as a math class. Economics is generally based on theory. So, why would any clearing house publish an economic book like this? I mean, it is terribly written and has many, many spelling and grammatical errors. I had to reread a couple of passages because I thought I was reading it wrong! That should have been my first clue. The information in the book is boring, lacks imagination, and is not cohesive. There should be more examples of supply and demand curves, instead, there is one example used through out the whole chapter and sometimes used in the next. The summaries are okay and has a test yourself, but only gives the answers to odd questions. Also, at the end of the chapter the authors have an 'appendix', but the information in not consistent to the chapter information. I don't even look at the appendix.
Now, I dread picking up this book to read it. You would think that since this is one of the first economic course that students must take that the author would try to grab your attention and fill your head with interesting and quizzical information. On the contrary, what a snooze-fest! Shame on the authors, the publishers, and the teachers for approving such an awful interpretation of economics.
