I'm do glad I got this book. At first I was worried of how the book would look but once I opened the box and saw that the book looked like new I was really happy. I'm very happy that I didn't have to pay full price for the book I got it at a great price it was better than paying $112 dollars for a new book. If I ever need to buy another book witch I know I will, I wouldn't think twice I would buy from them again.

It's a required book for school, so I'd prefer not to read it but find myself spending time with it anyway. It's got some typos here and there but nothing major. It's great that it's available for rent rather than having to pay 3 times the price to buy.
