I ordered this book from BOOKS4CHEAP and they never sent it, so I ordered it again with Classicbook and it shipped supper fast. I needed this book for my social welfare class, so I had to rent it or buy it. I am studying to be a social worker, so I thought it would be better to buy the book. I am so happy I did. I love the book; it has a lot of interesting points of views on how the social work life is. I also love the book because it is easy to read and understand; I am not a fan of big and complicated words so this book is perfect for me. Highly recommend it ;)
The book I received was a very old version of social work practice and as such is of no use to me. I needed it for my PhD purposes and since the version I have received is very outdated, I cannot make us of it at all. The sad things is this old 1986 book still depicts its Barnes and Noble price of $23.95 and to I had to pay ZAR 492.59 for it.
This book is required for my social work classes, and is priced a minimum of $20 more in the student store. I ordered it when my classes started and received it before my next class meeting. It was used, but there it was in better condition than the used books at the student store. I am very happy with my purchase.
The product details and isbn # do not match the picture shown. I ordered this book expecting what is shown and received the 2nd edition for the same price as the 10th! I'm a week into school and now have to deal with a refund and going without a book for the next week. Extremely frustrated!
