Using intuition, a conversational writing style, everyday examples and outstanding graphs to present microeconomic theory as a way of looking at the world, MICROECONOMICS: AN INTUITIVE APPROACH sets a new standard for clarity in the course and requires no prior background in calculus. It builds on the foundation of individual behavior, showing students the big picture of economic intuition while developing conceptual thinking skills with carefully written analysis. The first chapters establish a set of tools based on utility functions, so students learn about supply and demand in context, with a solid understanding of the underpinnings of those concepts. The package offers unprecedented flexibility in terms of topical coverage and graphical analysis. Each new copy of the text also includes access to a premium website featuring Nechyba's LiveGraphs a suite of interactive, animated graphs that allows students to view dimensional graphs and functions illustrated in the book, as well as some additional graphs that are not in the printed text. Students can play and replay the LiveGraphs while listening to a brief explanation of the graphs.

What does the title mean? It is the idea that we can approach any electrical or electronic (and mechanical) fault using a basic logical or probability-based investigation to observe and correctly identify the significant indicators that will eventually lead us to the failure or failures. This is no different from the Detective Books you read or TV Shows you watch where the hero used a logical approach (while all those around him just ran around willy nilly) to identify the clues and catch the bad guy. This book is a complete course in Troubleshooting. Along with the written theory explaining my troubleshooting methods, there are over 80 diagrams and drawings, and 50 comprehension questions (with the answers) that will help you monitor how much you understand.

The challenge is to show why the "everyone" in the title can find Linear Algebra useful and easy to learn. The translation has been prepared by a native English speaking mathematician, Professor Anthony V. Geramita.
