I learned a hell of a lot more from this text than my professor. It was better written than I expected, it's as up to date as you can expect a textbook to be, and the pictures/diagrams are good. And most importantly, IDENTICAL to the hardback, but cheaper.

This book does an excellent job of going into depth about the topics covered in my class. Several figures give more details than in previous editions. One drawback is that this edition does not have the essays that were in the older edition. Those essays were extremely helpful for making connections for class. Also, this edition is extremely expensive however,amazon was much cheaper than my local bookstore.

When you pay as much for texts as we all do these days (even through Amazon), you expect it to be better edited than this book is. Still, this really is a very good text for micro, and I enjoyed the content. But there are many typos, misspellings, and poor usages of English Grammar that made reading quickly a bit awkward. Sometimes, also, some common term could not be found in the index or glossary. With this text, as with many others I have paid an exorbitant amount of money for the last 15 years or so, I wonder sometimes whether the book I've gotten was a "second" and that I perhaps just didn't know how to tell before purchasing that it wasn't "first quality" - so many were the errors and problems. It seems that the more we pay for texts, the worse they become. A little arithmetic would seem to lead one to believe that the publishers are quite capable of employing adequate staff to do this work properly. I wonder whether anyone else agrees with me. McGraw: SPRING FOR AN EDITOR and A PROOFREADER, PLEASE! It almost perfect...

Exactly what I needed. The book came in a timely manner. So much easier to rent then buy, especially when you know for sure it would only collect dust after the class is over. Thanks!
