Came to this book because of recommending from my professor. In reality, I don't like it as much as Micro Theory of Mas-Colell. It's probably more difficult than Kreps's book but less theoretical and mathematical than Micro theory of Mas Colell.
The math summary isn't good as I hope. Maybe this one in Mas Colell is much better.
It suits third-year undergrad or pre-master students than graduate level.

A Little inaccessible and not as complete a treatment of Micro as Mas Collell, Whinston, and Green
