Generally acceptableReviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 September 2014
The Amazon service was 5 star & the book is prescribed reading for a course, but the alternate use of the masculine & feminine personal pronouns by one contributor has annoyed me to the point of anger. English is a relatively uninflected language with the convention of mainly using masculine gender for the neutral or unknown personal pronouns, with the possible use of "one" or "one's". I am neither so ignorant, nor insecure, as to need tokenistic, patronising misuse of the language by someone who is paid to think; and I don't need to be taught thinking skills by someone so superficial. Philosophy & ethics shouldn't be dictated to by political correctness and equality is not based on tokenism. People seem not to use "one", perhaps it's too RP & formal; usage does bring change but the grammar hasn't formally changed yet - academic writing? I don't think so.

Good service, good book.Reviewed in the United States on 11 September 2014
This is the book I ordered. It arrived in time for class. Book was slightly banged up but as it will only be used once, that's really not much of a problem. Price was a little higher than expected, but better than paying the full price for a one time use book. The book itself is an interesting read, albeit a tad long winded and somewhat repetitive. However, for the most part, I am primarily satisfied with the service and the product in general.
