In my opinion this is an excellent first/second year undergraduate text. It is clear and concise, meaning you don't need to read through paragraphs and paragraphs to get to the point. It makes good use of diagrams which help elucidate the idea, and the mathematics used is appropriate - far too often other texts make automatic use of lagrangians when other simpler methods are equally valid. I've also used Microeconomics by Perloff and Microeconomics An Intuitive Approach with Calculus by Nechyba, and both were far too descriptive and either made no use of mathematics (Perloff) or relied too heavily on lagrangians (Nechyba). There is no other text for first/second years that is as ideal.

Even if you're a beginner or haven't studied Economics before, as long as you know some calculus and algebra this book serves as a shining example of Economic intuition. Not only is it well-written, but the diagrams, presentation and the lighter, more informal and user-friendly tone make this easy to understand and, at some points, enjoyable to read! Hal Varian has done a fantastic job covering all the necessary concepts both intuitive and (where required) mathematically with real world examples and beautifully written textual explanations. A must have for all Economics students!

A very detailed book full of practical examples regarding every single subject you will encounter in both undergraduate and graduate microeconomics. My only criticism would be that it requires a good existing understanding of math and economics in general in order to fully appreciate the subject matter.

I've just recently got this book and still have a little bit more exploring to do, but so far it's helped me a lot understanding the mechanics behind the formulas. There could be more graphics illustrating the examples and the examples used to explain the topics could be more varied (so far I've only seen examples with the same type of 'business' - a farmer)to make studying from this book more pleasurable, but apart from that is really good!
