This book was described as "used, acceptable, very beaten up, etc" however I was happily surprised to see that it was not as bad as described. A few underlined words, which I don't mind, and I put 2 small pieces of tape on the binding, (it's a large paperback textbook, so I expected the binding to be alittle torn)... For $5 and $3.99 shipping, I am very happy! Thank you very much.

Good book. Lots of neat illustrations, and speculations on early civilizations. Unfortunately I did not end up needing this book for my Humanities class, but having it on my coffee table makes me look smarter haha.

This book met my needs for my college class. It was a great price for a book that cost a lot more elsewhere
