4.0 out of 5 stars Great book
By Stephane Budge on October 20, 2021
Good book but I bought this at the new price and got a used book. Pretty upset about that. I bought this (and many other books) in 2019 and am only just getting to it. It sat uoved on my bookshelf for over a year and I just opened it to find these scribbles. I am really upset about paying for a new book but having a used one.
