This was the Macroeconomics book assigned last summer by my macroeconomics professor. Although it was only a textbook, I found that McConnell was able to explain the topic in a clear yet somewhat wordy way. Maybe I just found a liking for economics, but I really enjoyed learning through his book. He used many tables and graphs to make the subject as clear as possible.

I was required to use this book for my "ECO 200: Introduction to Macroeconomics" class in Northern Kentucky University. Overall, it was a boring class, and I only read the textbook on two occasions only: the first was when I was about to take my midterm exam...and the second was when I was about to take my final exam.

I scored an A on my overall ECO 200 grade.
I have felt so under-achieving because you are reading such fun books and I have NOTHING to report. So here's my Macroeconomics book. Yes, I am reading it. very thoroughly. Can't say that I've read much else, but I will!
As for this book, it's very educational, well written, and sometimes easy to read.
A poor textbook. Why people pump out identically boring texts probably says something about why education has such a poor ROI in the USA. I cannot bring myself to write anymore words about this boring book. Go read a more interesting econ. book. There are many.
Maybe they could put the graphs on the same page as the text relating to the graphs in the next edition? Also, examples involving Beyonce don't make the content any more interesting.
