This edition does NOT come with the access code for Connect Lucas, regardless of the title; as this feature is required for my course, this edition was useless. Although able to return it (fortunately), it is frustrating to read (in the title no less) that it is "with Connect Lucas" and have to call support to find out that it is not. The book itself looks very interesting, and I am purchasing it from another source.

Most textbooks bore me to sleep/death, but this one is the least boring, it actually has little stories inside to distract you while you learn to prepear, organize, and deliver speeches.
