By Archer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
That's exactly what it is. No bells and whistles. I like the topic of chemistry so I had no problem going through it but I also feel that it's information is laid out in a pretty easy to understand manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars "In context' is key to this being good. January 27, 2009
Used it for class, I liked that it applied well to current situations. I did point out a miscalculation in the book...but otherwise good text for it's content.

The book is certainly in great condition. but I didn't know this was the copyright-violating international edition!!! Most of the books I looked at online that were the international edition said so in the description. For this seller, the only clue which I didn't pay much attention to when looking for the book is a small subtitle on the cover that says international edition. Since I didn't know or didn't really care what the regular cover looked like this was easy to overlook.

So anyway, I have no idea yet whether the edition is the same or not, the sellers who advertise the international addition say it's the same, but on the cover it SAYS its different from the North American version. I was a little annoyed to find out that this wasn't the regular version, since I think I paid a little more for this one which I thought was regular, and also the shipping took a little longer than my other books.

So yeah I felt like this seller should have pointed that out, but as I said, the condition of the book is great, so that is a plus.
