We surveyed over 400 students representing 23 colleges and universities. Here's what they had to say about Goolsbee, Levitt, and Syverson's Microeconomics, 2e:

I really love this book, I think it does an outstanding job of explaining everything in a way that is not only easy to understand, but also extremely interesting.
Colette de Beus, Occidental College

It pulls economic theory and real world examples together and makes me think about everyday events from an economic perspective.
Brianna Anderson, University of North Dakota

The best thing that has ever happened to me. Sometimes I sort of understand the concepts of the book but when it comes to solving the problems, it can be hard and the step-by-step methodology of the Figure it Out is great. My professor also uses them, so it’s really great to go to class.
Sofia Oliveros, George Washington University

I absolutely love the Figure It Out boxes. They help so much when I am trying to study for exams or just grasp a concept that is confusing to only read about. I really like that the solution is worked out so you know the process rather than there just being an answer.
Hannah Hagy, University of Mary Washington

It’s a textbook, as with all textbooks they are not always exciting to read. But there are times where one goes “Ah ha! I’m glad I read this.”
Kassandra Pierre, University of North Carolina at Asheville
