There was one review that gave two stars to that book with the following reasoning: "Beware, you'll need to spend another $40 (collective sigh in horror) for Answers Manual"... I find it a bit strange - average reader of such a book will be earning more than $100K/year for most of the career. So he should beware of ... $40 for another piece of invaluable learning material? We need a balance check here :)

Twice we tried to order 2 copies of this Pearson textbook from B&N. Both sets (all 4 copies) were damaged, including broken spines. Don't order this item from B&N unless you also have the time & money to have copies re-bound.
