You won't just receive a textbook with The Living World. We provide a wealth of presentation tools including textbook images in a variety of formats, Power Point outlines, and animations as well as online laboratories, activities and tutorials for students to help make teaching a little easier, and learning a lot more fun.

Very difficult to use on the computer and not very user friendly. I would not recommend this as an ebook. I bought the actual physical book because this was too problematic to use for my class.
