Very well written book.

Fantastic book !!!! Really a fun to read because it contains so many real-case examples. I graduated in math and read this book just for my personal interest. I wanted a book on economics that explained all the basic stuff, but at a level that was deep enough to challenge me. And this book gave me what I wanted : I started reading it and couldn 't stop until the end. A reviewer had the remark that there was a lack of mathematics. It is true that really advanced math is avoided, however that does not make the text less rigorous beause all the concepts are cleary explained by using graphs and very basic algebra. (If this book was about advanced abstract math itself, I would agree that graphs is not a rigorous way to proof things, but this is a book on economics, though, and it goes rather deep for a basic course)And if you like more math (as I do in fact), you can easily derive the mathematical explanations straight away from the very clearly written text. What is more important however is the fact that this book really learns you how to think like an economist.I also very much like the editing style, repeated definitions in the left and right marging, a lot of illustrations, a lot of interesting real life case studies, enough space on each page to make your personal annotations... I wish every textbook was like this ...This book succeeds very well in explaining clearly with enough rigor the basic principles of economics.thanks.

A Modern View Of Aggregate Demand and AggregateSupply

This is one of the only texts that uses the inflation rate on the vertical axis of the As-Ad diagram. This is a more modern approach to these curves than the standard approach whichplaces price level on the vertical axis. Professor Taylor explains Economics in a very clear and interesting way.It's definitely one of the best Principles books on the market.

Great Book

John Taylor is an excellent professor and a spellbinding author. This book makes Economics fun and enjoyable. All college courses should use it if they know what's best!

A fun way to learn econ

Not that the author is my teacher at stanford, but its very easy to read and understand allegedly complex economic theories with this book. If any college student is taking Econ, I recommand this book very much, just as a helper...
