Gregory Mankiw is one of the greatest Economists of our times.
He cheekily increased the number of his book titles by just re-arranging the same stuff and chapters from one main book.
These books are:
1- Economics: contains everything. Has chapters on basics + Microeconomics + Macroeconomics
2- Principles of Economics: The paperback "Principles of Economics" is 95% cheaper and 95% the size of the paperback "Economics". I compared "Economics" 908 pages to "Principles of Economics" 862 pages and found them to have exactly the same skeleton and chapters, albeit "Principles of Economics" seemed to be a slightly "revised" version of "Economics", with somewhat clearer and more accurately descriptive phrases and many mistakes corrected. However, and probably to justify the slightly more expensive "Economics", he removed a few less important paragraphs. On balance, I personally prefer "Principles of Economics". So does Gregory Mankiw, who declares it as his favourite book on his website.
3- Macroeconomics: Is exactly the same as "Principles of economics" MINUS Microeconomics chapters.
4- Microeconomics: Is exactly the same as "Principles of economics" MINUS Macroeconomics chapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 19 Oct 2009
Having just started an Economics undergraduate degree, I was having a little trouble finding a worthwhile textbook. I bought Economics by David Begg due to my Lectures being heavily based on it, but found that I didn't like it so much. Then I remembered this book. It was one I'd used when studying Economics at GCSE, when I wowed the class with my knowledge of concepts such as arbitrage. Now as soon as I started perusing through this book, I realised how good it really was. The content is so easily understood, the writing style so fluid and is a joy to read. The examples used are explained in detail, but not in style which makes you want to burn the book, but in fact continue reading and reading and reading.

Others may disagree with my opinion, and that's fair enough. But From my personal, but also objective view, having compared it to a few others, I found that this was the best textbook for my style of learning.

I'm sure if any others decide to purchase it, they will be equally as happy, and will benefit profusely from the quality of the book.

This book was my economics Bible for the principals of economics course I took at university, having never studied economics before the book was able to explain it in terms that I could grasp. A complete godsend for economics beginners!
