Format: Paperback
This text needs to be reviewed by a professional editor. In addition to having a biased tone it has what appear to be contradictory statistics in it and a few that can't seem to be found outside the book. The idea of the book could be good as it has a well rounded grouping of material but currently as a text book it is confusing and frustrating with a couple of extremely dry stretches within. The test questions that go along with the book contain questions that cannot be located in the second edition as if the book was reviewed but the questions weren't. As a text book it just doesn't make the grade.
