At the price, it's fair I guess that the rented copy is filled with lots of highlighting. But overall, the book still serves its purpose.

3 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Daddie on February 27, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
From one of the worst classes I've taken, and I'm still pondering if it was the book or the professor's lack of student instruction. Great presentations on info from the prof when not having the students or guest present, (he graded too little and oddly as well) but I can't say the book and him ever really seemed to balance out. Potentially good, but in the hands of a death on student teaching and inactive prof it's just a paper weight. Maybe if the prof knew or used the book more in class I'd have a better oppinion. More likely the publisher would of had to make lesson plans and free business examples like those found on Harvard Review Online to make things fit better overall. Either way it wasn't much of a single source guide in my experience to make up for the lack of others.
