This sixth edition is appropriate for second-year university courses in intermediate microeconomics. It teaches microeconomics as a way of looking at the world, using plenty of new applications and examples to demonstrate the theory. Because it uses calculus (only in footnotes), this text is considered to be in the upper mid-range in its mathematical rigor.
