Never got the bookReviewed in Canada on 18 October 2012
One of the books in the order was lost in the mail and as a result I fell behind in the course I was taking. I thought the company should have bought the book for me from another company and absorbed the extra costs instead of just returning my money. In the end I had to pay fifty dollars more for the book in my school library. The customer service representative , Amber, was was very helpful though and answered all my questions promptly. I understand that she doesn't make the policies.
