Having recently started my first year at University studying economics, this was one of two books that i was advised to buy. I have found it a vital aid to the marcroeconomic lectures, it explains concepts clearly and uses excellent up to date examples. My only problems with the book are that it does not cover the mathematical notes in enough detail and because it is an American book the majority of figures and exaples are based upon the US economy. But these minor problems should not put you off an excellent book.

Format: Hardcover
I have read Blanchard and didn't like it so well. Too confusing. Mankiw's book is the best macro book at this level that I have read. It is incredibly well presented and explained. He is clear like glass and one topic flows into the next like a hand to a couture glove. Admittedly there's not much maths in it but frankly there's so much covered (550 pages) that adding in sufficient maths would make this gargantuan and probably wouldn't sell much. This is a book about generally understood economic ideas and tenets and the job done is splendid. From here, and assuming you know the maths, I'd suggest tackling Wendy Carlin's Macroeconomics if you want to get your teeth into some harder stuff.

This book is good, make no mistake about it, but bloody hell is it wordy. I'm a man who likes his facts coming to him quick and dirty, but Mankiw sets off on a grand crusade to make everything very very long. Not that this isn't a good thing for some people, but not my cup of tea.

Despite being second hand, the textbook looks as good as new! It arrived on time and is exactly what I wanted. Very pleased with the product.
