Review of "Economics - John Sloman"
If you are studying economics, for one reason or another, this is a very useful book.The book is geared towards those who are starting their journey into the great mystery that is economics. It starts off with the basics of what economics is, and gets on to the more complicated stuff from there. It's not overly daunting for the beginners, and that's a great feat for a 800-odd page book to achieve.
The book explains economic concepts and theories very well, with colourful graphs and case studies to aid understanding. The book also includes some questions and summaries of chapters.The book covers a lot of topics. As far as I can tell, it covers most if not all of A-level economics, which is two years of study. But I have to point out that the book does not advertise itself as an A-level textbook. It does in fact deviate and/or go further than the syllabus in certain places. Good in most instances, but bad if you are studying economics for A-level only.I don't think I can write this review without mentioning another book, also called economics, by Alain Anderton. That one does advertise itself as an A-level textbook, and follows the A-level syllabus closely and rather well. If you are studying for A-levels and are not planning to study economics any further, then that one may be for you. Although I have to say, I found this one easier to follow, and the differences between the topics covered are not very significant.
If you are studying economics but not for A-levels, then I would recommend this book as your main textbook. It's easy to follow and contains a huge amount of knowledge. This book is in the recommended reading list for people applying for economics at LSE, so obviously other people like it as well.*All comments base on Fourth Edition.
