“This textbook does a…thorough job of covering learning disabilities. It is well organized and I feel that the students would enjoy reading this textbook. Current changes and trends in the field are clearly explained in the textbook. The case studies are a definite plus…”
Mariann W. Tillery—High Point University

“…the authors have done a great job putting current issues and changes in the field of LD into this textbook.”
Monica A. Lambert—Appalachian State University

I have only read the first two chapters and I feel that the text is straight forward and presented well.

However, when I pay almost $100 for a new book I expect it to look like a textbook. I am in a bind because I am currently taking a class for which I need this book, otherwise it would have gone straight back to amazon. This is not a hardcover book. It looks like a bootleg copy! The inside looks like a poor photocopy (black and white only). Some pages are hard to read and have copy lines. This is not what I expected from amazon at all. I have never been disappointed in the past, but I am with this purchase. I will purchase my textbooks from a different seller in the future.

Obviously I needed this for a class, so it wasn't a book I picked up for fun. The material was a little dry compared to other textbooks I've read in this subject area. I was really disappointed with he quality of the book - it looked like a photocopy of the original. The pictures were very low quality and some of the text boxes were hard to read (the original had light blue boxes which didn't translate well to grayscale). I would recommend getting a used version of the hardcover over this version.

Format: Unknown Binding Verified Purchase
I have made several purchases from Amazon during the past and have not had ANY problems (from other sellers). However, when I decided to purchase from Amazon directly, I am VERY DISAPPOINTED. As a matter of fact, disappointed twice. The first copy of this book was of very poor quality. The ink during the printing process was extremely low, the graphics are not clearly visible, the binding is misaligned from the spine of the book, it appears to be reduplicated and I thought it was going to be hardback for $97 and "new"!. So, I requested another one and one was reissued. If I did not know any better and did not still have the first copy, I would have thought that it was the same exact book. I will never choose to order directly from Amazon again, as in the past, I should have used another seller. I expected much more from Amazon, especially when ordering directly from them.
