A major goal in writing this textbook is to provide one that is comprehensive
yet flexible enough to allow teachers to focus a class on their particular
interests and time constraints. Our personal preference is to begin at the
beginning and work through the entire book (which is, of course, why we
organized the material in the way we did),but a number of approaches can be
taken to give a different emphasis or simply to reduce the breadth of material
* Coverage of core topics in microeconomics.
* In-depth coverage of many topics from current microeconomics research.
