Advanced Microeconomic Theory’ remains a rigorous, up-to-date standard in microeconomics, giving all the core mathematics and modern theory the advanced student must master.
Long known for careful development of complex theory, together with clear, patient explanation, this student-friendly text, with its efficient theorem-proof organization, and many examples and exercises, is uniquely effective in advanced courses.
New in this edition
General equilibrium with contingent commodities

The book was well written, logical and relatively easy to read (for an advanced Microeconomic text.) The appendices were useful as a refresher and the proofs were sufficiently rigorous without being tedious.

Of course this is not a book for simply interest about the topic. I don’t consider this text difficult to understand. There are many much hard to read advanced microeconomic texts. The language used in this book is alright for a master student. Wish they have the hard cover version

Great Book for students of Economics. To understand the content of the book however, you will need a very strong grounding in mathematics. If your Maths is not good, this is not the right book for you

It is just what you would a expect: a PhD level, theoretical book on microeconomics. The book often makes more sense than my professor teaching the course. The math proofs are easy enough to follow–tends to skip lots of algebraic steps, but what advanced math book doesn’t–and the pages aren’t covered so densely that you cannot focus.
