5.0 out of 5 stars Get this one and Chiang 30 Jan 2004
If anyone reads Chiang 1st, s/he will find it easy to understand. Get these two books.. you won't need other books in Mathematical Economics... excellent books. Both of them can also be used for refrences at point.

This book is beautiful.
clear simple explinations built up in a clear way.
1) explicitly defined Theorems
2) proofs with clear starts and ends.
3) starts at level that should be within the grasp of able A-level students
i.e. not much knowledge assumed.
4) contains goods maths followed by economic examples that use it.
5) A wellcome counterpoint to economic books and lectures that use bad maths
i) theorems with out showing the conditions are met
ii) use floating 'dx's
6)goes to a level beyond undergraduate level to give a strong powerbase.
7)Mathematics is the language of economics.
Until you are master of the relevant sections, understanding economics
will for you be like reading the Ancient Bible and not knowing hebrew.
Therefore even if yours economics degree includes maths techniques
modules, you will find yourself using maths, you have not been taught yet.
So buy this book and get on top of the maths in your course.
8)get it before you go, read it before you get to uni and then you can
spend the first few weeks partying instead of reading maths to keep on
top of your course.
9)read this book and feel like a million dollars.
10) if you have NO INTEREST IN ECONOMICS, and are doing maths
still get this book and it will be a good primer on a whole heap of modules from
Linear Algebra to Analysis.
11) I believe people to be in error when they say there is too
much maths in economic course, they need more, without the leaps
so even if you think you want less maths read this book.

By A Customer
This book offers a comprehensive coverage of mathematical methods for graduate students in economics. While being a text in advanced mathematics it begins with the basics. Therefore it is highly accessible. Though targeted to students of economics (with many of the examples and applications constructed around modern economic theory) the text could be recommended to any student seeking to deepen their understanding of mathematics. It is more than a reference book; the material is lucidly presented, and formal proofs are enhanced by intuitive explanations that are essential to good learning.
