While cutting edge ThriftBooks pricing technology and the latest supply-chain methods allow us to serve you better, it's the hard-working, dedicated, team in Auburn that differentiates ThriftBooks. Each quality, used book is saved, sorted, rated, shelved and finally, shipped by hand from Washington. You can have confidence that the quality book you choose will be sent to you, unless our software tells us that a superior quality copy can be shipped to you more efficiently; then we'll give you an upgrade at no charge. That s the power of shopping with a ThriftBooks company.

negative comment by Anne A on Dec 8, 2017

Book was in great shape. But your dreadful inventory sticker on the spine damaged the dustjacket. If you must put stickers on books,invest in ones with easy remove adhesive. This has happened too often.I'm not buying from Thrift Book vendors anymore.

positive comment by ECBII on Dec 7, 2017

One half of hinge coming loose. Would rate condition "fair". Shipped loose in plastic bag.

negative comment by Roger H on Dec 6, 2017

Hardback book shipped in only a thin plastic envelope. I will never know if I received the book in the condition in which it shipped. Totally inadequate service.

positive comment by monique on Dec 6, 2017

I didn't receive the book and I contacted the seller.even if I hadn't absolutely asked for refund, I have been immediately refund. Receiving the book would be of course what I wished and needed but the overall experience with this seller is EXCELLENT!

Thank you.

negative comment by ioannis c on Nov 24, 2017

The book was in poor condition, with significant water damage affecting the cover and most of the pages. Additionally, the book was stated to have been shipped on October 3 but only arrived on November 24, 2017

positive comment by Adan R on Nov 7, 2017

Book arrived earlier than expected and as described. Thank you so much for your hard work!

positive comment by Denise R on Nov 4, 2017

Book was just as described and arrived on time. Thanks for the great service.

negative comment by Jonathan K on Oct 31, 2017

The description of this book's status is shockingly inaccurate. It was described in 'Very Good' condition, and "all pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings." But, there are many pages that are heavily underlined and annotated.

positive comment by Gary on Oct 31, 2017

As described---thank you!

positive comment by Katherine C on Oct 30, 2017

Arrived today, and in perfect condition. Thanks for your professionalism throughout.
