A very well-written textbook by a Harvard economist. All the areas of economics are covered in depth here. Mankiw keeps it from being too stuffy with some fun anecdotes from popular culture; my favorite being a reference to Kramer from Seinfeld (discussing unemployment).
As a side note, the author is accessible@ his Harvard e-mail address; he has answered several e-mails I have sent him.
