OTB024-01-principles-of-microeconomics-400x518

Textbook: Principles of Microeconomics

Reviewed by: John Brouwer, Eton College
Overall Rating: 4.3 out of 5

Reviewer comment: The text is consistent in terminology and framework. The early chapters are well setup providing foundational information for the each of the subsequent chapters.  The text is well laid out as is the content but the text should be entitled: Macroeconomics: Theory in Application from a US Perspective. Overall the text would be excellent if there was a considerable amount of Canadian content added.
