  2. Jonathan Camfield Says:
    The closer I read this book, the less I understand. It is written in a very labrynthine and overly-detailed style, jumping between examples and terminology.

    It does a very poor job of giving an overview of the theories. This book over-complicates even the simplest concepts of economics, most likely to be in compliance with the 14% new material rule for textbook editions. It presumes a knowledge of algebra and eventually some calculus, but spends a paragraph explaining the derivation of circumfrence, and how Pi is roughly equivalent to 3.14, in my favorite example of the authors bogging down in petty details.

    If you are assigned this book in class, I highly recommend changing to a different class, or hoping that the prof (as is my case) gives clear lectures and uses the book to provide some further depth, but doesn’t overly engage in using or testing from it.
