As a student, I really like the content of this book. It is very "readable," has great examples and even better Figures. It's actually quite interesting. I gave it 4 stars because the edition of the book is extremely cheap. It's paperback, and the pages are glued to the binding instead of being sewn. My book has already split in half...

This was a great book for the college class my son needed it for. It was in the condition described by the seller. Perfect for what it was intended.

The book is in great condition and it shipped pretty quickly. This book is very well written in that it doesn't go too much into specific detail of physiology. Great for college physiology courses. Definitely recommend.

Not sure why this arrived with a massive crease up the middle but apparently this was something that was common in several of the reviews. The book itself was a solid narrative and relatively easy to understand. I do with the author had not chosen to sectionalize the book into bold orange sections cut up by navy blue sections that didn't seem to necessarily match the flow of information. Beyond that though I'm glad I bought it.

I only gave one star because I couldn't give less. The book I received was not the book shown that I ordered. I also ordered a new book which this was obviously not what I received. The packaging it was shipped in was so horrendous half of the book wasn't even covered up. I have contacted these people twice to return this book the first the day I received it but both requests have gone ignored. These people are a rip off DO NOT USE!!!!

The book came quickly and looks good. Nothing seems to be wrong with it and it was definitely a lot cheaper than if my husband were to buy it at the college bookstore! Thanks!
