The author's down-to-earth, humorous writing style and historical approach to economics is a hit with students who otherwise might find the subject too intimidating or dry. Mini-case boxes allow students to take topics one step further. Extra Help boxes assist students with difficult concepts while Advanced Work boxes provide more challenging work. less
