Can't believe I'm giving five stars to a textbook! But then again, I can't remember ever actually reading a textbook through, start to finish. This book really was amazingly well written, insightful, and informative. n.b: it is written to a freshman-in-college level audience, but that mostly shows up in some of the examples used. I think I would have read it even if I hadn't had to!

The best textbook of ANYTHING I ever read - in other words, not only valuable in content but the very best in methodology and approach. Stimulates thinking about economy and in general.

This is an economics textbook that actually teaches something useful. There are some charts and graphs, but the main focus is to develop a thought process, not to present vocabulary and formulas to memorize. The first half of the book focuses on basic human interactions that define "economics" using simple examples. Armed with that understanding, the reader moves to the second half to understand more "macro" issues that will be familiar to anyone who pays attention to national news. The concepts [...]

The language is transparent like no other economist's has ever been.Theologian and economist Paul Heyne selects five concepts as doorways into economics: economizing actions, marginal decisions, opportunity costs, interactions between economizers, and markets and prices.The essay and other words by the author are available at the Online Library of Liberty: ollbertyfund/c [...]

I always used to want to write my ideal economics textbook. Then I read this book and realised that Heyne, Boettke, and Prychitko had already written it. Clear enough in its exposition to be accessible to the general reader whose interest in economics might have been piqued by something like Freakonomics, and heterogeneous enough in its outlook to interest and challenge a well read but orthodox economist, this is one of the best books on the subject I've ever read.

Эта книга познакомила меня с экономикой, как с наукой о процессах, происходящих в обществе. Она убедительно рассказывает о том, что само собой сложившиеся вещи складываются по определённым законам. А осознание этих законов позволяют предсказывать будущее. Давно прочитал [...]

This book opened my eyes and changed my life for the better. Once you understand basic economic concepts, it is much easier to discern which politicians are telling you the hard truth about your economy, and which ones are saying what people want to hear in order to get themselves elected. Every voter who wants to be informed should understand economics (the basics, because it is a big complicated field of study) and this is a great book to start with.

Just read the review and realized that this is a textbook =_=||But it's very interesting book to read even just for recreational purposes. Although I'll highly recommend to take some notes while reading.

This a pretty good book for a general overview of economicsThe author has a witty style and uses great real life examples.If you read it cover to cover I think you should have a pretty good grasp of the dismal science

This was literally the worst textbook, let alone micro economics textbook I have ever used.
