This is perhaps the best text on microeconomics at the senior or beginning graduate level. Clear, concise, and full of very appropriate applications. * K. Choudhury, Southern University * Salvatore excels in explaining the fundamentals. . . . This book does a great job at teaching the 'meat and potatoes' of intermediate microeconomics in a friendly way. * Anne E. Winkler, University of Missouri-St. Louis * Excellent writing style, coverage, applications, and extensions . . . much superior to the other texts I have examined. * John P. Cochran, Metropolitan State College of Denver * Microeconomics is an excellent text . . . Salvatore has done a great job integrating the more traditional with the 'newer' topics in the field. * Rosemary Thomas Cunningham, Agnes Scott College *
