The reason I gave this only 3 stars is so buyers will be cautious to check that all pages are included in their copy. I turned to chapter 7 yesterday only to find that my copy jumps from page 180 to 229. Don't be like me, facing an assignment deadline only to find the information you need is not included in your copy!

Otherwise, the content is helpful, and there is not too much writer grandstanding, as some course textbooks tend to have.

This book was rented for a course and when I got to chapter 8, IT WASN'T THERE! The pages went from 180 on the left to 229 on the right. It was hard to complete assignments on chapters that are missing from the book.
