I received this book in very excellent conditions within the delivery time indicated. I'm only ten pages into the book and I must say, this is great, relevant material. Can't wait for my anatomy class to begin.

Glad I purchased my book through Amazon. It took a little while to arrive, but well worth the wait for the cheap price. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for the newer edition because they are very similar.
