Clearly written with an eye for proof, the text is rigorous enough to satisfy mathematicians skeptical of the validity of economic analysis while remaining accessible to students with limited exposure to higher mathematics. If you're interested in the kind of math economists use, this is a good reference. Charles Thorn rated it did not like it Dec 28, It is a math book, after all.
