On time!!! July 5, 2011
The textbook is a series of pro- and con-essays on educational topics and I'm required to read it for a class. I received this textbook promptly, and it was in good condition, as advertised. I needed it for a college class, so when it came to us so quickly, I was thankful. I would recommend this seller to anyone. Thanks very much!
