I gave one star not because of the book, but because of Barnes and Noble, and because I have to rate at least one. I tried to save money by purchasing an e textbook from BN and it was the worst experience ever!!! The book had trouble down loading, and when it did, it did not allow me to read it. I was without a book for a week. College students know what it is to be without a book for a week. Barnes and Noble did not give me the money back, did not give me a solution, and did not send me a rental hard copy at least while they fixed their software problems. Their answer: " YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE FIX IT" in the mean time....no book. Do not worry if you do not have a book, Google is a good source of research, but make sure you explain to your professor how great BN is with college students. They lost my business!! This happened immediately upon purchasing the book the first week of my class.
