Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent book. It was part of my Syllabus for Labour Economics course and i have to say, it was the most comprehensive guide for labour market issues with up to date examples. Each topic is fully covered and where author's opinion is expressed it is confirmed by examples and current trends. Helped a lot in doing my own Econometric research regarding issues of racism and discrimination. If you put enough effort to go through it and study thoroughly, will allow you to get very high grade (as it did help me).
Clear graphs with thorough explanations. great for self study. Did not require any additional sources

It is a brand new book, even there was no plastic packaging, but I'm sure it's totally never used. Really worthy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Without question the BEST Labor Economics text ever! 19 Dec. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is truly an amazing work, which shows so many models of labor market phenomena at the undergraduate level that an undergraduate's economics education is incomplete without it. This book is essential reading for both undergraduates and policymakers who want to learn labor economics, economics in general, or have a deeper understanding of public policy issues. The best features are its unmatched explanations of human capital models, labor market discrimination models, and labor union models -- which will change the way you think of these issues and give deeper understanding. The book is both concise, deep, a quick and fun read, and makes Nobel-prize winning material accessible to any undergraduate or policy maker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Labor Econ Text 6 Aug. 2011
By SueDonym - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I teach Labor Economics and this is the best text on the market. A study guide with extra problems would be helpful. Note that critical reviews are about delivery, condition and customer service when using 3rd party sellers. The text itself is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, accessible 6 Dec. 2009
By T. Hartwig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a good textbook for labor economics, very accessible. It describes the theory in good detail then goes on to give examples of what happens in the real world. If I wasn't buying for class, I would still have bought an earlier edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, understandable book 25 Feb. 2013
By Jessica Lytle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a student, sometimes text books are really hard to read. This one is an easy read and easily understandable. A reading assignment of 30 pages is nothing to dread. Highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Analytical 19 Aug. 2013
By amoore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you like looking at graphs and intuitive explanations/solutions, then this is your book. If you like analytical econ (actually maximizing with respect to preferences and possibilities), then this is not your book. This made a nice complement to the technical material covered in lectures, but I wouldn't have learned much of anything from this book on its own.

Also, slow shipping (but that's what I paid for), and moderate quality for a used book. Could have been worse, but could have been better.
