Purchased this new edition to use for teaching college students. I used the original when I was in college and felt it met the criteria for updated information. Recommended.

I would love to review this item, however I never received an e-mail telling me it was mailed and still have not received the book.

Extremely dissatisfied.

I ordered this for a college class and the book arrived in great condition and within days. I was nervous since this was my 1st time buying off the internet but I was very impressed and will do it again.
