I found the book quite disappointing. I was expecting a decent quantitatively minded university text for econ undergrads. Instead, it feels more like a high school text, as definitely that's the level of the mathematics. Likewise, the economics discussion feels very simplified and coarse. Now I do not doubt that the author has in depth quantitative expertise of the field. Simply the treatment of this book feels below par for a rigorous introduction.
That said, the book introduces clearly many useful concepts in an very intuitive way.
