this is a graduate level microeconomics textbook for those who don't need the breadth of coverage offered by Mas-Colell et. al. The chapters on maths are EXCELLENT and the way the authors explain the concepts as well as the exercises have no peer in any math-for-econ textbook i'm aware of. otherwise, the book is as rigorous as any micro text of this level, and the coverage of topics is balanced. the authors' style is relaxed and confident. also, it is the only book with a complete chapter on auction theory. my only complaint is that the answers to the exercises at the end of the book are a) often TOO short b) don't cover all the exercises. one of the best graduate textbooks around.
