I learned a great deal of information that I now apply to my personal life. The material was not difficult to understand. I would recommend this book to anyone.

The book is great, but i will NEVER rent a USED book from Amazon again! It was SO worn out and marked up with the cover bent a wrinkled and tore up, and most of the pages were FILLED with ALL SORTS of pink highlighting and writing all over the place! I was VERY disappointed. Before I initially saw the book, I was thinking about paying the difference to keep the book at the end of my rental period, but NOT with THIS book!

The packaging it came in had holes in it and the international edition lacks the RDAs and the DVs that I need to use for class. I'm a little disappointed with packaging too because the book could've gotten all wet.

I have been a nurse for a really long time and going back to school to further my education isnt easy. This was a class I needed for my BSN and it has tons of information not just for serving your patient but in our everyday lives. Its a great book to help in everyday living.
