Timothy Taylor  Journal of Economic Perspectives  Macalester College

3 Quick Things about 5e: 

1. Focus remains on what's made previous editions so well-received: helping students                            solve problems: Taylor walks students through the problem-solving process.

2. As with previous editions, 5e is a mainstream book; it covers all the main topics in a                  balanced way. Taylor writes about the subject with no ideological axe to grind. 


3. With 5e, Tim Taylor has updated a great deal of statistical information and data, but the             chapter topics and sequence are the same as those of the last edition.

“I got the book and, frankly, couldn't put it down. I have listened to all of Tim's' programs for The Teaching Company and

find him to be an extremely knowledgeable economist, who has the ability to take complex issues and make them come alive.

His book is really an extension of his rather amazing style.”   - Bill Sciacca, Penn State-Scranton
