Acceptable. A book with obvious wear. May have some damage to the cover or binding but integrity is still intact. There might be writing in the margins, possibly underlining and highlighting of text, but no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text.
I have loaned out about five copies of this book and none ever come back! It really changes the way you look at a lot of the world. Many never get past the middle of the book having picked up the bulk of Carse's message. It is one of the books I have gone back to most often, especially when dealing with a "political" puzzle.

An interesting and possibly very useful premise...playing to win is not the same as playing to continue the game. The premise encourages an approach to life that focuses interest more on bringing others into "play" and then encouraging their successful engagement in the game of life, as contrasted with an approach to life that is widely understood as "playing to win." Sadly, a lot of leaps required to swallow the logic used to support the ideas presented. In the end, I was more edified by the cover leaf than by the text.
