I am about the most critical reader you will ever find. There is not one textbook in 50 that I'd likely give a rating above a "C-minus" (or above a 2 of 5 rating). However, I give this textbook an unequivocal A++ (or 5 of 5.) It's as good as it gets for an Introduction to Macroeconomics. It covers all the broad range of basics that you would want for this type of course. It provides you with an extremely clear understanding BEFORE it builds upon that as a new building block towards the next chapter. It also explains these basics to just the perfect level and depth for and introduction level. When you are finished, you will feel very comfortable with how much you are able to comprehend the subject. Mr. Mankiw is clearly one of those few gifted authors who are able to explain topics with such clarity that there will be no misunderstanding at all. He is thorough, clear, and precise. Additionally, he makes a subject that might otherwise seem boring to some, come across as quite interesting. I was so impressed that I sought out the author and informed him just how impressed I was with his ability to convey such understanding. After four years of college textbooks on a multitude of subjects, this is perhaps the best written textbook when it comes to passing on UNDERSTANDING I have ever read. The reader might be surprised just how much he/she has grasped when they are finished. I highly recommend that other colleges adopt this as their primary Intro to Macro Economics textbook as did my college. It appears that Harvard has opted for hiring quality professors (such as Mr. Mankiw) who are gifted in teaching, rather than hiring academicians that communicate without conveying clear comprehension. Again, this book receives my very highest and very enthusiastic recommendations. I can not imagine anyone being disappointed with this book.

Indeed a wonderful econ book for all majors! I like especially the chapters on open-economy macroeconomics. However, I do hope to see not only the very illustrative diagrams in the book, but also certain numerical value of the raw data which are used to generate the diagrams. For example, its nice to have the numerical data in Figure 17-2(a) National Saving and Domestic Investment and 17-2(b) Net Foreign Investment so that students can do more precise comparison of the data across different points in time.

Format: Paperback
Mankiw (economics, Harvard U.) presents an introduction to macroeconomics that is more devoted to applications and policy than to formal economic theory. Chapters cover international trade, measuring gross domestic product, the cost of living, production and growth, the financial system, the natural rate of unemployment, inflation, and short run economic fluctuations. As is common with many economics textbooks there is little recognition of controversy within the field.

Among all the textbooks I have seen in economics, I have found Mankiw's to be the best. It is clear and concise, addressing all the important intermediate issues in macroeconomics. The description of concepts is simple, and the book benefits from a three pronged approach to teaching - graphical, mathematical, and anecdotal. The student is free to choose whichever one he feels most comfortable learning from.

I've read countless textbooks in my collegiate career and this is one of the best books on the market. Mankiw puts complicated macro principles into easy to understand, contemporary language. Furthermore, the case studies, current articles, and graphs make the introduction to macro that much easier.

A nice clear introduction to some principles of economics, but a book that is entirely uncritical and one-sided regarding some very controversial policy topics.
Writing is concise and accurate on the theories of Macroeconomics, however the real-world applications are often problematic.

The text is excellent and is suitable for any type of introductary Ecnonomics class. It can be used in a tough course or an easy course, as it provides a great level of organization so that the instructor may choose the material at his discretion depending on his course lay out.
