From my inbox:

Dear Mr Mankiw,

i'm an italian student, i'm studying law in the university of turin and right now i'm reading your book for an exam of political economy.. and i wanted to thank you because even if my professor almost made me dislike this subject..reading "principles of economics" i'm understanding and loving it.. every page i'm more enthusiastic!

Econ profs: I am sure none of your students feel this way about your lectures. But, even so, if you aren't using my, and this student's, favorite textbook, maybe it is time for a change. You can get information about the book by clicking here or by emailing
