As most Text books go this one was fairly interesting and held my attention. The pictures were very good and I liked the flow of the content. Not worth the price, but I have yet to find a Text Book that is. Not fabulous but not bad....I may even keep it.

So I purchased this book for under seven dollars (including the shipping)and I was expecting a torn and freyed book seeing that it was being sold for such a low price. Though to my surprise the book had little tearing (as far as the cover goes) and the pages where in great condition! If this company had sold the other books I needed, I would've gladly purchased them. For instance, I ended up paying seventy-nine dollars for a book that barely had a cover and that I didn't need for as long as I do the history book I purchased. For future books I'll need, I'll be sure to check these guys out first before going to the book store.

Having this book arrive faster than expected was so helpful to me as I was finishing up my studying for finals. I had been reading from the online version but half way thru the semester purchased this instead and was so pleased with it. Good quality and prompt delivery-both important things to making me happy :) Thanks for the service and will do it again soon.

Format: Paperback
Nice combined edition of a great text. Well organized at front and summary of chapters. Most of the previous edition's documents that were on an additional data CD are now incorporated in the text. Stories augment the historical narrative as history comes alive. Author seems balanced and fair in presenting historical perspective.
