By L&B Colorado on December 29, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was a difficult read! It might have been a combination of writing style, format, layout, content...I don't know what but for a graduate class, I had to put the book down repeatedly. In the end, I skimmed most of the assigned reading and looked for other sources.

My instructor had very few assignments relating to this book. If you are taking this for a class, I would find out the extent to which you will be using it. I usually keep all of my books following a class, for future reference, but I can't see holding on to this one.

The book did arrive promptly and in excellent condition.
