I received this book in a timely manner and in good condition. The cover needed wiping off with an antibacterial wipe because it was dirty but after that good as new.

Writing a paper on various films can be difficult. I was used to dealing with books, newspaper, and sources along those lines. How to properly site a film was new to me. I had to learn for this one class and this book was a great find. There are tons of examples which are very helpful. This book is well formated. One does not have any trouble understanding the author. This is the best book out on the market for writing about the movies.
