Overview

The text is easy to read and understand, it is student friendly, and it focuses on basic principles and concepts that students at the introductory level need to know.  Throughout the textbook, students ask questions and the author provides the answers. Thus, students read with a purpose—finding answers to important economic questions. This approach will minimize (if not eliminate) the boredom with introductory economics usually expressed by students.
