Here is my original review:
The first thing I have to say about this text is that the number of typos in it is absolutely appalling. For fun, I just went through a page and highlighted all the errors I found at first glance. I found 21 on one page. This book is blatantly unedited to the point where it distracts completely from the material. I honestly cannot remark on the quality of the material presented just because it is impossible for me to get into the concepts with all of the typos distracting me.
I thought maybe the author was foreign, and this would maybe allow me to forgive some of the errors. On the first page, in large bold print directly below the author's name it says the institution he teaches at "University of Mew Mexico." Not being able to spell the institution right makes me seriously doubt the material in the rest of the book.
To add to the typos, the book is of extremely low quality. The paper is low quality and after just a week of use the pages are beginning to fall out.
Bottom line: if you are assigned this book for a class, I hope you are good at overlooking typos or you will never be able to learn anything from this book. The author needs to learn to spell. Or at least get an editor who knows how.

It was a class textbook. Probably on of the better ones. Easy to read. Could have been organized a bit better.Published 12 months ago by Kristi J.

Good textbook overall. There are some chapters that are a little too wordy in my opinion but it is informative.Published on November 14, 2013 by Dina
