Format: Paperback
This is a decent macro introductory book. Quite easy to read and a lot of discussion boxes relating theory to real life and like most textbooks you need to go through this a few times to be able to put everything together into a coherent whole. I used this book as one recommended title for my diploma course and took copious notes but luckily I went through Mankiw a few days before the exam skimming in the bookshop which was just as well because that was more concise and easier to understand (Mankiw is next on my list so it'll be good to see if I feel the same way after reading it). Anyway my point is that like me Blanchard rambles on a bit so you need to give yourself enough time to be able to go through this. The maths is not hard (zero calculus which I think you need in an intermediate text though the book doesn't really claim to be one) but Blanchard's book suffers from the same problem as much economic literature in that it takes several lines to lay out an obvious mathematical identity or formula like I know a + b = c and therefore a = c - b and because b = d + e then a = c - d - e. Ok, move on!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Going into my first year studying Economics at University, having studied economics before this book helped me with the transition well. Whilst it doesn't cover all the advanced techniques and theories you will need for an entire course it is well-written and explains well with a series of real-life examples aiding the explanation. With the addition of the online material this book helped to teach and then prepare me for the exams. Definitely worth a purchase - this is a solid introduction.

Great book. Very well organized. Very good, and very clear introduction to macroeconomics. I'm not a fan of Mr. Blanchard as an economist. Nevertheless, this is a great book.

Extremely detailed. All bases covered. I found the structure a lot more coherent than Mankiw's Macro textbook.
