Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
1. When I pay fifty dollars for a book labelled 'NEW', it should not be missing pages: this one is missing at least the first eight pages as well as the table of contents...and maybe more.

2. LLC is the vendor of this book and was deliberately misleading: It does not make clear on the product pages that rather than being "NEW" this is a "scanned reprint" not the original book. It is only after I received it that I see it "may have additional errors" including "missing pages, upside down pages", "cropped text", "obscured pages".

3. I buy a lot of books only for this one in the last six months does Amazon allow no option for feedback about the book. There is only a 'packaging feedback' choice. Suspected reason: Clearly Amazon has been taking a lot of flak for these OCR books and has therefore *disabled* the feedback button.

Here is what Google and HP and the U. of Michigan and Amazon -- the joint culprits in shoddy copying of books -- ought to do: First, copy books only on demand. That means copy *far fewer* books. Which means you can do the copying more carefully.

Don't try to copy the entire contents of the U. of Michigan library with the result that you are producing a lot of errors in things that no one will buy.

MORAL: When you buy an actual book, the publisher does not say "there may be errors or missing pages". He makes sure the book is proofread before it is sent out. Reprinters need to follow the same rule: Don't be irresponsible.

MORAL #2: Customers, unless you don't care about missing pages, you probably want to avoid these "scanned reprint" OCR books with the striped light blue covers that look like someone ran off the title on a typewriter. There seems to be little attempt to do "quality control".

You wonder if they hired sleepy copiers at minimum wage to stand at a machine all day and not check their work.
