Through reading this book I learned how family history, the time of day you was born, the environment you live in and other factors, has a lot to do with one's personality. This book should be read by those in the medical, mental health, education and other fields. This is to better understand why people in part do what they do because the are who the are.

Your product came well before the delivery due date. The textbook came in very good condition as promised as I looked it over carefully. I would recommend you to anyone else when it comes to purchasing a product you have to offer. As I am taking classes online, I now have the peace of mind that I am now ready to take my next course soon enough. Again, thanks for you quick service and the acceptable condition my textbook came to me in!

This book is in perfect condition, and I have learned a lesson that I will not have any of my school books delivered in an inexpensive manner to save money. This was my fault, I should have paid to have it delivered in 2 days.
Thank you for the book.
