1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely poor quality
Reviewed in Australia 🇦🇺 on May 11, 2022
This book arrived today
I am seriously contemplating returning it.
I paid more to get the hardcover and thought it would be a book I would have for ever.
The book almost looks second hand.
The pages look like they have been cut with a wood saw.
I have never seen even an inexpensive book with such poor quality production.
The attached photos do not show how poor the pages have been cut, you would be embarrassed to give it as a gift.
I think I have talked myself into returning it.
