4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book July 15 2013
By Scott Krotee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Easy and clear text. Had this book for my motor learning course in undergraduate studies. The text was very organized and easy to learn off of.
4.0 out of 5 stars To judge or not to judge a book by its cover May 22 2013
By MilliMoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This text was ordered because it was a required book for a college course. The material was relevant, well organized, and easily understandable.

However, shortly into my course, the pages, one by one, began to separate from the cover (paperback) despite being brand new. Little by little I was adding to my pile of pages and eventually pulled the remaining pages out, sectioning the chapters into three groups and paper clamps to keep the book organized.

In summary, the context of the book was good. The binding of the book, well, let's just say, no exists.
