He cheekily increased the number of his book titles by just re-arranging the same stuff and chapters from one main book.
These books are:
1- Economics: contains everything. Has chapters on basics + Microeconomics + Macroeconomics
2- Principles of Economics: The paperback "Principles of Economics" is 95% cheaper and 95% the size of the much more expensive "Economics". I compared the expensive "Economics" 908 pages to the much cheaper "Principles of Economics" 862 pages and found them to have exactly the same skeleton and chapters, albeit the cheaper "Principles of Economics" seemed to be a slightly "revised" version of the more expensive "Economics", with somewhat clearer and more accurately descriptive phrases and many mistakes corrected. So, the cheaper book wins on everything. However, and probably to justify the slightly more expensive "Economics", he removed a few less important paragraphs from the cheaper version. On balance, I personally prefer the cheaper "Principles of Economics". So does Gregory Mankiw, who declares it as his favourite book on his website.
3- Macroeconomics: Is exactly the same as "Principles of economics" MINUS Microeconomics chapters.
4- Microeconomics: Is exactly the same as "Principles of economics" MINUS Macroeconomics chapters.
Others may disagree with my opinion, and that's fair enough. But From my personal, but also objective view, having compared it to a few others, I found that this was the best textbook for my style of learning.
I'm sure if any others decide to purchase it, they will be equally as happy, and will benefit profusely from the quality of the book.
