description of book's condition was accurate
Decent Economics Book7 August 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
The material is very dense and this book is very precise, so you may need to read the same thing more than once. There are many examples and I think the practice problems at the end of each chapter were very helpful in my studies. My microecon class used the 6th edition and this version is very similar. It was a good price and it was in very good condition when I bought it.

It was not said it is simply spiral copy (Photocopy only). I feel deceived by the description.
Perloff Micoeconomics 5th Edition11 February 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
If you are looking for a book that will actually help you learn Economics keep looking. I found the concepts densely couched in graphs of kilograms of hogs and pigs. I know that did not make a lot of sense, but it's all a bit hard to follow. The book jumps from definitions into abstract scenarios. Economics in general is abstract thinking about how and why people spend money, but this book loses that explanation someplace between the intro and the back cover. Reading text over and over again is not my thing. Maybe the 6th Edition will be better. I often wonder about why there are so many editions of textbooks. Did they leave something out, or come up with something new?
