I was really looking forward to this volume, but, once again, Barnes and Noble's wanton disregard for the condition of the book after it leaves their warehouse has let me down. Apparently their idea of "packing" is to throw the book into a three-sizes-too-large box with a single solitary air pillow for cushioning. Needless to say, the book arrived with a bent corner and noticeable scuffs on the edges. The book itself is pretty cheap, but not inexpensive. That is to say, considering the "workmanship," it should be priced more in the $9.99 range. The leather quality is decent, but the binding and the way the leather is wrapped around the corners are pretty shoddily done. Also, a couple of pages are wrinkled and folded in an odd way; it sort of looks as if someone hit them with some stream, scrunched them up a bit and then closed the book. Sometimes you don't get what you pay for.
