Bland, and confusing read. April 25 2014
By Emily C. Hess - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The author is so bland in his writing. To top it off, he is not even remotely clear or understandable. He switches back and forth between opinions and topics which makes it hard to understand.

Received on Time. Sept. 28 2012
By Satisfied Costumer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I received the book on time, and it had everything in it, it was supposed to. No pages were missing, it was the right edition and nothing was majorly wrong with the book itself. In other words perfectly received.
