negative comment by Susan K on Jul 15, 2014

Shipping and packaging were as expected. I was disappointed with the condition of the book. I was supposed to be in Very Good condition, but a large number of the pages have excessive doodling which is distracting.

negative comment by bookshopper on May 12, 2014

The pages have been torn out a lot. Please look through an item before really going for stating Condition.

negative comment by Priyanka B on Feb 3, 2014

It was shipped out on Jan 9, but I haven't received my order yet, 10 days after the estimated arrival date. Would appreciate feedback on this matter, soonest.

Bot received sent to an address in America nowhere near where I live!

negative comment by Jerilyn H on Nov 22, 2013

My complaint is that this book reeks of smoke .This flaw was not described in the condition write up ,or I would not have purchased it. I find this quite disturbing.I have ordered many books from this site,and this is the first time this has happened.

negative comment by qiyue y on Oct 3, 2013

This is four volume set, but I only received one! You can feel how disappointed I am!

negative comment by Angela J on Sep 11, 2013

My text book would of been here before the 9th if it was mailed the day I ordered. I see it was shipped three days after I ordered it. I want my shipping monies refunded!

Have not received this item

negative comment by yenwu l on Aug 31, 2013

I check seller before about the accompnied CD included in the book or not? Seller said " yes", when book arrived ,CD is not readable, a big clear cut in the CD body, I am wondering if seller knows this earlier? but still sold book to me intentionally.

its been 19 days since i ordered the book and until now i still didnt get it.

negative comment by Bernard B on Aug 19, 2013

You sent the wrong book. Now I need to take my time and print out the return form, pack it, go to the post office and pay to send it back. And I MIGHT get a refund if I send it back in the original package.

negative comment by AMANDA C on Aug 15, 2013

negative comment by Kenneth N on Aug 11, 2013

have not received the book after now approaching 4 weeks

negative comment by DANIEL V on Jun 13, 2013

This has been the worst mail order experience I have ever had. I never got the books. They lied about the ship date 5/27 v 5/29. Due by 6/7, it's 6/13 and still no books. They said check back after a month. I doubt they will ever come. Never again.

negative comment by CommodoreTVP on May 14, 2013

Described as "typical used book" book is close to trash condition. Sent in very cheap packaging. One of the worst sellers on Alibris if this is how they conduct business.

negative comment by James W on May 8, 2013

WRONG version..... shipped the older version. I got the mainly BROWN (5th Edition) cover not the BLUE (6th Edition) the photo above. 5th Edition Has 116 Large Prints NOT the one I need 6th Edition with 140 Large Prints

negative comment by Marnie R on May 4, 2013

I received an email stating my book had been sent on April 24th- money left my account and then another stating you no longer had the book, and the money was put back in my account. What is going on? I'm confused!

negative comment by Shannon O on Apr 25, 2013

I do not like to give negative feedback and thank S. for trying to salvage this. Someone needs to educate this seller about the difference between a new book and a used book. The first agent was very unhelpful.

negative comment by KOBINA R on Apr 18, 2013

It has been over 50 days and I still haven't received this item. I request a FULL REFUND for the book & shipping costs as soon as possible. Thank you.

negative comment by laura b on Apr 2, 2013

never arrived

negative comment by Wendy C on Mar 9, 2013

The book was damaged and definitely did not look new at all. It looked like it was run over by a truck. Pages were scrunched up, book cover was ripped. I would think twice before buying again from here.

negative comment by Allyssa R on Mar 4, 2013

I never received this book. Please resend.

negative comment by alitz301 on Feb 22, 2013

Book listed as "New" was obviously NOT "New." Packaging for a paperback book was inadequate. Seller was very slow to respond to e-mails.

negative comment by Evan on Feb 7, 2013

Book was listed as "New" but binding was torn. Took over 4 weeks to arrive. Not very happy at all.
