Excellent For School and Personal Reading

 on January 20, 2013
By Garrett Denney
This is an interesting review for me to write because I originally bought this book for a university course that required it, but am now reading it on my own.

Good for a class text book, keeps your interest

Had to get this for a class and renting was much cheaper then buying. As far as college course books go it’s not as dry and boring as many are and keeps your interest. Format is set up well and is easily understood and very acceptable. It’s nice because it’s not too big or heavy. My husband needed this for his class and although he’s only a couple of chapters in it’s been a nice text book so far.
