David returned to jobs at Oxford then London universities. In 1983 he got together with Stan and Rudi to write what has become Europe’s most successful economics textbook, featured by BBC Radio 4 in its series ‘Student Bibles’ along with other such classics as Gray’s Anatomy (with over 100 years’ start, now in its 39th edition!).

I also found the end of chapter summaries and the real-life examples interesting and helpful.
All in all it's a good read and I enjoy flipping through the pages and reading up things just for fun, as the authors don't use difficult language at all.
I would recommend though, to also buy maths for economics, as that book is very similarly structured, building up knowledge from easy to more difficult (still very basic) stuff. It conveys the mathematic principles behind economic ideas a lot better and in much more detail than the economics book (but that would be expected..).
According to my lecturer it really doesn't matter which version you buy, but from all those available in our library I like this one the most, due to its brightly coloured make up. The contents however, are pretty much the same.
