I bought this book for one of my college courses. So far is really good; very informative and up to date. It is easy to read and it goes to the point. I really like the fact that includes so many cases at the end of each chapter which makes the reading more enjoyable. I'm giving 4 starts instead of 5 because the images are in black and white. I expected full color images since I paid $80.00 for it and because it is a book about dress.

Currently at this moment I'm working on getting a refund on this book. The binding of this book is terrible and could cost you the full price of the book. Luckily since Amazon's customer service can help remedy the problem since renters can inform Amazon about problems.

But if you plan on buying the book don't expect it to last more than a week even if it's brand new. At college literally (and I mean actually literally no exaggeration) every student in my fashion class who had the book was falling apart by the second week of class, even the teacher's copy was falling apart.

The material with in the book is good stuff and can be an interesting read in of itself and the shipping was fast but the book itself tears apart so easily that you will be absolutely baffled. I'm not sure if you can get a digital copy of the book but if you getting a physical copy expect it to fall apart or be prepared to return it very soon. If you are getting this book for reading pleasure I highly recommend that you find another book on a related topic and avoid the hassle of it's terrible binding.

I'm not sure if there is a digital version of this book but if you can get it go for it because digital copies don't have binding problems.

This book is well written and interesting, but very out dated. It explains the meaning and feelings behind why and what people buy, very important for any designer.

The book was supposed to be used and in good condition. Instead, I received it in 3 parts: the front and back cover connected by the spine as well as pages 187-624 inside, the first 186 pages connected by the will of a higher power, and then the pages 181, 183, and 185 as single pages. This book is going to fall apart the second I put it in my bookbag....
