    I wish I could give a book review, but they never sent me the book! I ordered this early enough to have it for the first week of term, and received a book on WWII instead. Customer service refused to reorder it to get it to me in time since this was their mistake, or do anything to make things right. They said I had to start over on my own and create a new order. Who knows who ended up with my rental, and that's a big deal!!
