While the content of the book is fine it is very hard to read over the all of the highlighting. There is also writing in the book from several different people, some in a different language, that is over some of the text. As far a shipping goes, it came fast and the packaging was good enough that the book was still in good condition considering the delivery lady threw it in a pile of snow.
