The book is easy to read and explains the subject in a format I understand.

I purchased this for my music appreciation class, so I was required to make the purchase....but I have to say that I am enjoying the class and this book.

While I did receive the book, the 5-CD Set was not included as the title states.

I rented this book for my freshmen intro to music class, and did not receive the CD's with it. Upon emailing Amazon with my complaint, they emailed back and said that because it was a rental, they could not guarantee "supplemental materials:"

From their email back to me: "I understand that you are concerned about receiving CD's with the rented book.
I'd like to inform you that we can't guarantee that our Textbook Rentals customers will receive the supplemental materials with a Textbook Rental order as these are the old books. However, if it's included, you're welcome to use the material at no additional charge.
Please check with your instructor to see if the supplemental materials will be used in class as a number of professors may not require this. If you need them, you may wish to consider purchasing these separately through either your school's bookstore or the textbook's publisher."

I didn't realize the five CD's mentioned in the TITLE of the product were "supplemental." How silly of me. When I decided to email them a second time in response, saying yes I did in fact need the CD's for my class, their return email contained much of the same information, identical to the first:

"Please understand that, we can't guarantee that you'll receive the supplemental materials with a Textbook Rental though it is listed in the description or title of the book.
Since the rental books are sold by sellers, we'll not be able to send the supplemental materials with a Textbook Rentals and I'm sorry for any disappointment this situation may have caused.
Please check with your instructor to see if the supplemental materials will be used in class as a number of professors may not require this.

I purchased this for my music appreciation class, so I was required to make the purchase....but I have to say that I am enjoying the class and this book. The book covers music, starting with the basics of music, then on into Middle Ages Music, Renaissance music etc. The CDs that come with this book offers a very nice collection of music.

Title clearly says with 5-CD set and there were no CDS. I could have easily bought the book only for that price and not worry about shipping.

Let's be honest, if you bought this book, you bought it for a college class. The book and CD are certainly very informative, and that's really all I could ask it to be. I did like listening to all the music on the CD beyond what was required by class. But ultimately, Youtube is a thing, so you shouldn't waste $100 dollars on the CD's.

This book arrived very quickly and was in great shape. For the hard cover edition I got it for less than what my college charges used for paperback or even rental. The big problem is that while being listed as coming with the CD's which are required for my class, it arrived without the CD's. I had to buy a used book at my college book store that came with the CD's so that I could then rip the music to my computer. I then took the second book back for a refund. I would not have had to go to all that trouble if the CD's were included as advertised.

If I could give this a '0' star rating, I would. While I did receive the book, the 5-CD Set was not included as the title states. I can't do the class successfully without the CDs...which means I have to scramble and find (and pay!!!) another book with CDs. It's already 2 weeks into the class!!! Yikes!!!

I contacted Amazon and nothing.

Well thnx!!!
