Gruber's text is well-written and relevant. Admittedly not as concise as it could be, as a student I didn't mind the length at some portions because things were thoroughly explained. As economics texts go, this is probably the least "dry" I've encountered.

Gruber uses relevant and concise examples to illustrate points and inserts some humor to keep the read a little easier.
As another reviewer noted, this text can ramble on a bit much at times, but intelligent skimming through use of subtitles and keywords can avoid that. The problems are good, but at times can be more confusing than necessary.

It's a required text from the Public Admin master level class. The book is generally organized; however, I would recommend reviewing some of the algebra and calculus knowledge before taking the Public Finance class or reading this book. Otherwise, you may have to spend quite some time to understand the math concepts there.

good textbook if you want to learn about public policy and how it relates to finances

I am in a MPA program and this text was required. Gruber helped make economics interesting and understandable. This text is a great choice for educators and students alike.

I bought a copy of the text for an Economic Public Finance course requiring the use of the 3rd edition to cut back on costs. When I compared this text to the 3rd edition, there were only a few differences that I noticed-

- Discussion questions had a few differences (Re-arranged, numbers changed slightly, ect)
- Charts and figures in the 3rd edition had more recent information (especially relevant in chapters 21-25)
- Chapter on Social Security had another (small) section in it.

If you need this textbook for a class but do not need the discussion questions, I would recommend this textbook over the newer one. There is virtually no difference between the two. If you need the updated charts and graphs from the newer edition, most of them are available in the PowerPoint presentations on the publisher's website.
