Review

The strength of this text's format is its applied orientation . . . Relative to the texts I used, this book's strengths are the incorporation of readings, exercises, and cases. -- Review

The book that I ordered was said to be in "very good condition", but the one I received appeared to have beened mauled by a dog. The book was exactly what I needed, but I'm a little concerned about the truth in advertising as far as the condition was concerned.

The book was in outstanding condition for being a used book. The price was so good it beat the college bookstore price by 30 dollars. I have always had good experiences buying my college books on Amazon.
