I do not recommend RENTING this book because its a work book that requires to write in and straple fabric swatches to the book. I spoke with a supervisor and ask what my restictions were and of course i was not able to wire or make markings on the book so she advised me to buy the book. I would just recommend to BUY the book and save yourself trouble/time because it is very useful and helpful.
