Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Not happy about the lack of service of getting the number of books that I ordered. I only got a couple and Was NOT NOTIFIED that there were NO more. I had to keep calling and finally got an answer that there would be NO MORE coming- by then too late to order the 23 other books that I needed. This was a good book and I would have like to have given it to all my employees but due to lack of communication from your shipping dept- I had no clue that more weren't coming and that was NOT possible.
