Good book August 8, 2011
It's simple and straight-forward. It's easy to read and serves as a good reference. The format of the textbook is approachable and the information is immediately useful. The textbook I ordered was exactly the same as what they had listed. I am very pleased with them and will order other books, if possible, in the future.
