A Shoutout

From a book review of Spousonomics:
If you've taken an Econ 101 course in the past decade or so, there's a good chance that somewhere on your bookshelf is a dog–earred copy of Gregory Mankiw's Principles of Economics. The Harvard professor's textbook has become a classic, thanks to its simplicity and clarity — two qualities appreciated by gawky undergrads facing first–year distractions. After all, the dismal science never looks more dismal than when there's a choice between staying in to study Keynes or going out to flirt with strangers at a party.
