Very good. A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged. An ex-library book and may have standard library stamps and/or stickers. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less.
I recommend this seller, the book arrived on time and in condition advertised. All parents who have boys need this book. Wonderful book!

Sorry to have bot the book on CD.
Narration is dull and uninteresting. My son lost interest immediatley and I fell asleep. This was to keep us entained on a Summertime Roadtrip and hopefully give us some ideas to do with our scout troop. If I had bot the book, my son could have skipped through and found something to look at as well as read for himself.
