Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is the first book that I rented. The book arrived in great condition. I was very impressed. I'm pretty sure I will never buy another book again!
I am taking an online sociology class and needed this book. I am thrilled that I don't have to purchase my supplies from the campus book store because the prices are so high. I have been purchasing my books from amazon.com since 2002. I buy my children books also from here. We save so much by getting the ISBN # before classes start.
This book was in terrible condition when it arrived. After only a few weeks of use, it has fallen apart.
