4One of the better text books I've ever used
By Michael C
This is really a great text book that walks through some incredibly intuitive examples. I've always thought economics is a fairly intuitive subject when taught correctly, and this book essentially makes it that you could learn microeconomics on your own. The complexity builds as the chapters go on, but you really get a grounding in the basics that makes it much easier as the chapters go along. Do the exercises along the way and you'll be golden. I'm not the biggest Krugman fan in the world, but this is the best economics text book I've ever used.

Perfect book for economics, the graphs are a bit off and they can do better at explaining each subject as well as how they get all of their numbers, though overall great print and clear to read.
