Using for our HRM class, the content is very well organized & has a good structure & flow as you read through chapters. I plan on using this as a reference throughout my professional career, to come back to it and read the concepts to apply in various managerial decision making situations.

The book front cover was destroyed. And whachil shipped just after applying black tape on to the destroyed part. The condition of the book was stated as used - VeryGood. I can't understand what you will lose if you say the truths rather than tricking people.
