5.0 out of 5 stars great book July 13, 2008
This book is very informative and easy to read and understand. The chapters are short which means they are not trying to put in to much info all at once. I got this book for school and I actually enjoy reading it.

The book arrived on time and in the listed condition. It was the correct textbook and came with the CD's which both work great. The best part is that I bought it through amazon's price comparison.
