I strongly prefer this argument that academic writing is really difficult. You don't have the creative freedom to do something new. In the case of economics, it is more restricted.
However, you can simplify things and present them to the readers. And Prof Mankiw has done the same. His language is lucid and pretty easy that can be understood by any student. It starts from basic and provides us with lots of information and goes in-depth analysis of a certain topic as well.

Buy an earlier edition! This is literally the same thing as Macro by Mankiw 3rd - 6th edition. Way too expensive.

Appalling and Offensive, Inaccurate and Deluded.
Mankiw is a hardcore conservative economist and has no problem inserting elitist opinion in with economic facts and theories. I found this textbook offensive and inaccurate. At best, the author is uninformed. At worst, he is deliberately deluding you with his own warped political opinion and doing so by underhandedly putting his opinions into an introductory textbook so you don't have the tools yet to disagree with him. I would never use this in an econ class, unless you're forced to. Maybe not even then.

If you don't believe me, go look at his two page rant on minimum wage and labor laws and then go look up the corresponding statistics on the Bureau of Labor Statistics website and see if I'm not being serious when I tell you that he is either uninformed or blatantly lying. This textbooks is terrible.

First 22 chapters of Mankiw's Principles of Economics contains this book. I couldn't find any reliable information about differences of these two books when choosing which one to read so I felt obligated to share it.

I can't believe the printers didn't catch this
This is absolutely not the sellers fault, but I was flipping pages and found a couple pages filed and crinkled. I carefully unfolded them and it looks like the printers didn't check this one for quality. The pages were still sealed together at the top and significantly longer at the bottom overlapping the book with a jagged edge like someone poorly cut them with scissors. The rest of the book is fine it's just these few pages. I knew I was getting a used book and it's actually in really good conditions it's these few pages are weird hahaha. I'm using this book for my microeconomics class but my school uses ebooks and sometimes I just find it easier to read from an actual book. I also bought it because this is the first time I've read a book in my bachelors program that can explain the material well with out it being 30-60 pages long. I hated Macroeconomics because they used a different book by a boring author, but N. Gregory Mankiw is actually good at explaining things and keeping my attention. I may just have to buy his other economics books in the future.

FANTASTIC Text Book. Mankiw explanes principles in an incredible way. Reading this book gives the reader the lexicon and understanding needed to proceed in additional economic reading and a framework to develop strong articulate opinions on economic outcomes.

Everyone should read an economics textbook and this is a good one.

Most of the big concepts are simple to understand but incredibly powerful. Things like opportunity cost, comparative advantage, importance of incentives, dead weight loss, etc. they can help you understand how we might fix some of the big problems in both society and within our own lives.

This is not exciting reading but I think it’s important reading.

While Principles of Microeconomics is still as easy to read as Principles of Macroeconomics, there's a lot of copying and pasting from one book to another for the first eight chapters. This textbook also skims a lot of important topics and is very, very heavy on the laissez-faire free market belief when Microeconomics is supposed to be exploring other types of markets and regulating markets.

The author does a fine job of laying out each topic and new idea in a succinct and understandable way. I enjoyed how he didn't insert his opinion into the discussion, but rather stuck with the facts, reason, and evidence. My only problem with it is that he sometimes repeats himself, and it gets annoying. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in studying economics at the introductory level.

This is basically a textbook, which I read in a University course, Introduction to Microeconomics. It has explained the concepts with plenty of real-life situations, examples--easy to relate--which helps and make it more easy to read. Adequate numbers of mathematical problems are included to understand the topic. The course was an easy one, so I give credit to the book.

Extremely clear, anecdotal explanation of Economics. Makes very distant concepts tangible to the unexposed first year college student.

Excellent textbook! Has everything you need and nothing you don't need. Teaches the material in a very easy to understand way. Got 95% in my econ class because of it!

This is a pretty readable book covering a lot of the major topics, but I still didn't particularly enjoy it because it is intended to be a first-year course in Microeconomics and seems to leave out any Calculus-based analysis and many other topics that I consider to be core Microeconomic concepts like production and labor, and more elaborate studies in Game Theory. I suppose such a course is acceptable for students who cannot handle difficult subjects, like business majors.

I suppose such a course is acceptable for students who cannot handle difficult subjects, like business majors. And so I still gave it four stars because I think it accomplishes the goals it set out for itself, but it's only four stars because I'm not very happy with its goals.

Still, I haven't found a Micro book I like--they're either so steeped in Math that the connection to applications are obscure, or so reluctant to encounter Math that you don't learn what you should. Which is odd because most Micro courses hit a balance between the two. ...more

This was one of the text books I had to read for an "Economics for Public Finance" in my policy program. I took macro in undergrad and read some text books on my own on economics thereafter so that is what I have to compare Mankiw to. This book deserves a review and 5 star rating because, while it's still just a general economic concept text book, it does its job incredibly well.

Mankiw's style is extremely clear and he does a much better job than other text books in making the conceptual both easily understood and quickly applied to the larger job of economic theory as a whole.

I would probably consider this one as the best book on Microeconomics I've come across.
Perloff's Microeconomics would be a very close second.
Both are packed with information, and written in a super clear and straightforward way.
Recommended to anyone who wants to learn the discipline and needs a solid introduction.

I used Mankiw's as a reference while completing the online course in Microeconomics Principles by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Lays on the laissez-faire free market stuff very very thick. Mankiw makes some fairly basic fallacies of equation (e.g. his ideas on net job gains from breakdown of trade barriers fail to differentiate between types of jobs -- such as programming vs. Wal-Mart checkout clerk) but generally a decent economics book that nicely explain why many commonly held economic beliefs are uninformed knee-jerk mistakes.

This book was assigned to me by my college now class .
But I must say, for a textbook, this was actually not a bad read.
The language was not extra serious and it gave many examples that helped me understand different concepts because it was easy to relate too.
I think this would be my favorite textbook I ever read .
