What a rip offReviewed in the United States on 11 January 2019
Almost $35 for a book smaller than a novel. No wonder education is so expensive. Those who make so called educational books overcharge students. Greed!

Either I Learn a Lot or I Get a Great Review of InformationReviewed in the United States on 6 July 2017
I get a lot of great information from this book.
What a waste of paperReviewed in the United States on 21 January 2017
What a waste of paper. Everything in this book is either common sense or available more easily, quickly and in a more up-to-date state than in this format. If your professor assigns this as required reading, don't bother. You will learn nothing new from this book.
