I purchased this book for college because one of my teachers said I needed this edition, and amazon is cheaper than the college bookstore. I made sure the edition number was the same, I thought the only difference between this and the hardcover was $30. Boy was I wrong! It turns out that while this book was done by the right author, was the right edition number, and the proper title, the book was still not the one I needed. I found out from my professor that the book I needed was copyright 2011; this book is copyright 2010! The only other way of knowing this is the wrong book is to check the number of chapters, the one copyrighted 2011 has 18 chapters, this one has 13. Never was I so disappointed in a purchase as this.
