This book was ordered for a class and arrived as expected in perfect condition. If it is required for your course, I would not hesitate to buy it. If you are looking for a recommendation for a text book, this falls short, especially for online learning where there is no lecture or supplemental information. The explanations for coding are vague. The review exercises in the back of the book do not support the material in the preceding chapter. The coding instructions are are non existent and do not lend themselves to online course work. I am currently 6 chapters in the book. I do not know if there are other options out there, but if there are, it would be worth comparing.
