well I bought it because I had to. One of the editors is a teacher and he makes it mandatory. If you buy it retail its 85 dollars, I found it online for about 20... I still feel cheated. Funny how pride on the cover is "edited by"... well these editors did a fine job of making run-on-and-on-and-on sentences and crunched words so close in some spots that whole sentences become a single word... truly shameful. DO NOTE: there are NO colors, most texts are dense as the book is thick (over 500 pages), introductions are long enough to be topics on their own... etc. It does inform on certain subjects... that you would find online anyways.
