Things I admire about Abel and Bernanke's Macroeconomics...

The most important reason to choose and use Abel and Bernanke's Macroeconomics is that it is the most thorough and comprehensive book on the market. Other textbooks try to be short--to hit the highlights. Abel and Bernanke's book is the only one that is any good as a general reference, and the best one to have on your shelf if you want to or to teach from if you want your students to have a comprehensive view of the subject.
