1.0 out of 5 stars crappy product
By Michael Moore on December 13, 2020
Book has several pages cut and pasted like a 2nd grade construction paper project, yet sold as new. Not what I paid for. High price, low quality. Might be able to resell for 25cents, which would help pay for the stamp. Great business model...
