I rented this book for class and though it doesn't bother me personally, my copy came a bit more rough looking than anticipated. Torn pages, high-lighting, and bent/damaged cover but nothing that hinders me from using the book. I just hope they don't try to charge me for the damage. I took pics the day I got it and submitted them but never heard back so hopefully it was seen.

I thought that this book was very informative and up to date. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about the United States government. It not only talks about the government today but also how the U.S. government began.

Incredibly boring and overpriced. My classes required this text, felt like it was useless. Way too expensive for what it is.
