I had to buy this book for a community college class I'm taking. It's one of the most poorly written, lightweight and overpriced textbooks I've ever had to buy. The tips, suggestions and explanations are overly basic. There aren't many concepts of substance covered in any of the chapters. The text is also aimed squarely at youth in their late teens and early twenties, which isn't relevant to me. I also found the tone condescending at times.

If you want to learn to speak in public, this is the book for you. The book is well made, fairly attractive, and fits in most book bags. You may hand carry it if necessary. The cover is somewhat rain resistant but the pages are not. Most pens and markers work well on the pages and you can write your name and contact information on the inside cover so person who steals it can wait in the bushes to ball you up and take your stats text as well. If this is the book your professor called out for you to use in class then this is a must buy! Highly recommended.

Renting digital versions of this textbooks was useful. I can create notes, use the X-ray feature to find key words in the text, and flash cards are automatically prepared and ready to use. The digital copy is much cheaper than the one in any college bookstore. If your professors requires you to get the book, look into this option.

Had some very large used stickers on cover, but otherwise it's in good shape.
