5.0 out of 5 stars best undergrad macro book
i haven't used any other macro books so it will be a slightly biased review. but then again i didn't need to. i am in 2nd year of uni and i can say this book is so easy to read and understand, i wish all my other modules had books written by Mankiw. above all he makes macroeconomics seem a very interesting subject. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid introduction to macroeconomics
This book provides a useful introduction to Macroeconomics for first year undergraduates. It is best used as a base to develop and intuition and feel for the subject, but is, on the whole, quite simplistic, and one should try to quickly move on to a more technical reading, such as Macroeconomics by Blanchard, which is more mathematical, and provides a better base for...

This review is from: Macroeconomics (Hardcover)
This book provides a useful introduction to Macroeconomics for first year undergraduates. It is best used as a base to develop and intuition and feel for the subject, but is, on the whole, quite simplistic, and one should try to quickly move on to a more technical reading, such as Macroeconomics by Blanchard, which is more mathematical, and provides a better base for further study.
Has good sections on Economic Growth and open ecnomomy macroeconomics.
Recommended for those who want to avoid calculus and maths in general! Those with stronger mathematical skills may find it a bit frustrating.

This review is from: Macroeconomics (Hardcover)
Well done and extremely happy about it. A good book that explains very well. The book act as teacher to me. Many explanations come in diagrams and real-life examples (with colurs too!) which help students like me to be able to understand better. Although is in the fifth edition which is not the latest, but it proves handy enough especially for those whose budget is slightly tight. Difference between this edition and the sixth is little anyway. A well worth buying book. Bought with no regrets.
