First off, out of the box, it looked like it had water damage because of the adhesive they used on the binding. The text book is so cheaply made, that within the first week of using it the cardboard cover is bowing- great "hardback"- and you would think with how heavy it is, they would have invested more money in a cover. The pages are so thin that the rip easily when turning the page. The print goes through the page so you can see the text from the previous page through figures on the next page. I haven't even made it through the semester and the cover is ripping off - this is not from misuse of the text just normal reading. The material inside yes is wonderful I highly recommend Lehninger as THE biochemistry book, but my 5th edition from my intro to biochem class is way better! I wish I didn't waste the money on the new edition...
