5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!!! February 24, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book, easy to understand with helpful hints and charts. For those of you whose school has a specific version, the 3rd edition is exactly what is being used in my class but with a different cover for just under 1/2 price.

By Joe & D
This is another one of my books that I used last semester. This class was pretty hard for me, but the book helped. I just read along with the lectures and I ended up doing okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars College February 20, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was in great condition. I got it a little late, but soon enough to help me with an assignment. Kind of a dry read, but definitely a good supplement for someone learning to argue respectfully and effectively.

I bought this book at a relatively cheap price! It was practically brand new. I was expecting it to be a little rough considering the price, but it is in great shape.
