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.
