  Reviewer's Comments
  I recommend this book for first-year college students as a primary textbook. Written in a casual style, Taylor provides good context for some topics often weak in Macro Textbooks - such as labor and financial markets. There is a heavy emphasis on international issues. It is free to view online if you suffer through frequent ads but a physical book is quite cheap ($24.95). The review and study guide questions are unimaginative.
