Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having owned an earlier edition of "Economics" since the late 1970's I have been aware of Samuelson's clarity of prose and quantitative concepts (without blinding the reader with math!)for most of my working life in marketing and related disciplines. The moment I heard of his death I rushed to buy the latest and therefore last edition and was thrilled to find that apart from a thorough up-date the 19th edition included a chapter on the 2008 "crash". This is a book that cannot be rated higher for anyone remotely interested in economic theory or practice. It should also be required reading for all MP's, MEP's, MWA's and their ilk.

Format: Paperback
I read 'The Worldly Philosophers' by Heilbroner (great book!), who recommended this text amongst others as a next step. Having gone through it, I can see why, for it provides a more detailed introduction to modern economics, as well as a launch pad for further study. Caecilius? in the garden? But what about Cerberus? You don't say! Cerberus in horto est? Thank you grammar school, thank you Cambridge Latin Course. And thank you, Samuelson: you may be gone, but you continue to educate, your memory lives on.

I bestowed five stars upon this legendary book, but I also read a few critical takes alongside it, and they certainly made me think about whether I wanted to progress further with the mainstream economics of Samuelson or Paul Krugman. Anyway, for what it's worth, I read: 1) Stephen Marglin's 'The Dismal Science'; 2) Steve Keen's 'Debunking Economics'. Speaking only as a humble member of the public, I found the criticisms in these books pretty telling.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book in light of the global economic crisis, realising that I knew nothing about economics. (But don't worry I know how to say Caecilius is in the hallway in Latin... Thanks, private school!)
This book was really helpful in providing me with an understanding of fundamental economic principles at both the micro and macro level. It did so in a thorough and well laid out manner.
Worth the purchase also because of who Paul Samuelson was. He appeared to be an economist worth listening to (Wikipedia him)and in this book he presents all sides of the economic opinion with a historical background.

Definietely worth the purchase.
