Book Synopsis
As a tenured math teacher and an adjunct economics instructor, I wanted to write a book that was easier for students to read and understand. The book does not bog students down with unnecessary statistics or ambiguous economic theories. I have eliminated the complex economic confusion that is common with many college level text books by writing this book in plain English. Students will not have to read pages upon pages in a twenty chapter text book in order to learn and understand economic theory.

This economics book is for any student who wishes to obtain a thorough and practical understanding of microeconomics without the perplexity or headaches. This book covers the major concepts discussed in a 100 level and a 200 level microeconomics course and it is written in the same style as I conduct my lectures; clear, relevant and easy to understand.

wonderful book. takes all the useful economics topics and breaks them down into simple terms, removes all the useless junk. easy to understand, actually interesting to read and gave it a second read around too. graphs are wonderfully illustrated and explained in detail. Makes every other book look like a joke 10/10 would read again.

This book is all substance with no filler. Almost all economics textbooks are filled with hundreds of pages of jargon that will usually make the reader get lost, however in this textbook it is the bare-bones of what you need to learn microeconomics. Each topic that is covered in the book has an easy-to-follow graph associated with it. The author of this book takes a very complex subject and breaks it down in a way that an eight-year-old can fully understand it. This textbook is highly recommended to any person that wants to learn microeconomics. The author did a great job in illustrating and getting his points across in each chapter. This is the easiest textbook to read and gain knowledge from that I've ever come across.

This is a great book. It sure beats reading tons of pages looking for information for hours. Who has the time for that? This book is so clear and straight forward. Every college book should be like this. Simply put, the answers are right there in front of you. You can't go wrong with this professor or his book. Nice work.

This book is such a helpful book for microeconomics, I learned a lot from it, it has lots of details and it was used for every class lecture, because without it you would be so lost. I'm not the kind of person that buys books, but this book was worth buying because it helped me a lot thoughout exams and homeworks! Richard Piedra is an awesome, funny, helpful teacher !

I love this book, I have bought other microeconomics books before, but this is one is definetly a lot better. It has details, samples, graphs, and my favorite it's that the pages because you can write your notes even with a pencil. The price is a pretty good deal for students, most books are $150.00 and up...This is a subject that is a bit tough for me because in the past the book I used didn't provide straight to the point details. I prefer books that have the information needed and are light so carrying it to class is much easier and don't cause your back to hurt. :-)
