introduction to private security was a textbook required for one of my college classes.
the picture displayed on this site shows the newest version of the textbook, the one my professor instructed us to get.

after ordering my textbook, of which the title, author, and picture of the book matched what i needed, i received an older version.
the older version, as with most textbooks isn't much different from the new version, the biggest difference is the cover.
I order this textbook, according to the image displayed here, and received a completely different textbook, in which the cover doesn't even slightly resemble this one. this is my only complaint.
