Varian's Intermediate Microeconomics is a fantastic introduction to microeconomic theory. Particularly in the early phase of my first-year graduate economics course work, I often turned to it to gain intuition. It stands the test of time as a great reference.

Pretty good, even if you start from a low level.

I have left this book marked as "currently reading" for a long time, mainly because I frequently came back to it, in order to re-read some parts. Now, I have read the entire book at least once, some chapters twice, a few even more than that, but I'm now planing on coming back again to this, so I'm changing the shelve to "read".

One of the few textbooks I have read almost cover-to-cover. Complete with rather horrific economic jokes (like hitfrogs targeting a scorpion's family). Unfortunately, I have to go over the entire thing again, especially the formulae.

It's an easy and comfortable subject to begin with. The author did a good job explain things in detail. Probably too much detail.

I hate to review a book that I did not completely finish, but I'm going to do it here. The book was just not helpful for the class. It was very high level and there were not enough examples and too many words.

Note to self: The most difficult book ever! Main text for Basic Microeconomics course under Prof. Kiyoshi Taniguchi (Ohio State 2001), Fall Term 2003; and Microeconomics course under Prof. Yuichiro Yoshida (Boston College 2001), Winter Term 2004. International Development Program, International University of Japan

I will probably have this textbook again but I really do not think it is very clear for people who do not have background in finance.

this is the best academic book for economists studying a degree in economists to be able to compete with international standards
