It gets better the more you read it.
on 3 May 1999
When I started out with this book I hated it. Well, its still a pain, but the longer you study this book the more sense it makes, and the more you understand why they NEED to use all the notation. Modern micro gets very abstract, and we all need to learn all of that. Only when you go back over the text after your first year do you realize how well this book is written. There are some problems with the text, though: (i)too many interesting points are left as exercises, (ii)examples are not fleshout out enough, and (iii) they often try to "explain" a concept by using ONLY the math. Using both math and English would be better.
