The other review describes it as maths light (which is true) but that can easily be added on. In fact the book is very clear in the Intro that it is purposefully maths light. NB there is another version of Perloff that uses calculus throughout and that is probably the text that should be studied for an economics major in Y1.
A easy read and certainly not heavy. Look also at Hirschleifer - Price theory and Applications - a perennial classic, but very much along the same lines as this book and presume still loads available second hand!
comments always welcome
I've looked and tried to use other textbooks to supplement this one, but really none come close. All the content is there, it's extremely thorough, and the mathematical derivations are in the back of the book for those who want to know. Also the book is quite modern in outlook and use of game theory, which is quite extensive for an introductory book.
For my second year I'll need something more advanced, and most definitely more mathematical, but for an introductory microeconomics textbook, I can't find anything better. You certainly won't regret buying/using Perloff.
