Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
Poor. Water damaged; the book is stained and rigid/rippled in shape, this affects the cover more than the content. The front has has a scuff mark. Fine to read and use still. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. Contains: Illustrations, black & white.
