I especially love it when books, as this one did, offer a loose leaf option. It's so convenient to be able to take a whatever pages you'll need instead of lugging around a bunch of chapters you aren't even using at the moment. I wish all college textbooks offered a loose leaf option.
Furthermore, the book arrived in the mail in the best, most perfect condition. It was unopened and sealed. It was easy to use and the condition of not being a book was surprisingly convenient.
