MEDIA REVIEWS
This nice, short, simple book is aimed at providing an introduction to Economics for those who signed up to do a course involving Economics at Universities, but had not studied the subject beforehand. They have constructed an excellent primer on the basis of their experience of running such introductory courses for several years. Besides the purpose for which it has been prepared, this book will also be a boon for school teachers trying to get their students through Economics A-level. The basic concepts are nicely explained, with the minimum of technical detail, and there is a splendid glossary at the end. * Professor Charles Goodhart, LSE *
The way the authors explain the core and main ideas, concepts, tools and models of microeconomics is excellent. I liked the use of excellent examples and the intuitive approach. I can see students learning well and also enjoying doing so. * Professor Abhinay Muthoo, Warwick University *
I find this book to be an excellent introduction to economics for someone who has limited or no knowledge of economics whatsoever, and the easily comprehensible writing style allows lecturers to use this book for teaching foreign students as well. * Jovan Vojnovic, University of Edinburgh *
