HOWEVER.... The book is very poorly constructed...cheap glue, cheap ink, weak spine, etc. So if you can deal with a couple pages here or there with rubbed off ink from the page opposite and handle the book carefully you should be fine.
Personally, im fine with book as it is being that its still cheaper then renting it... but you definitely get what you pay for in quality.
