Purhchased on line as a textbook. Was very happy with the expediance of delivery and processing. The book arrived in perfect condition with CD unopened. As a text book: excellent learning resource, comprehensive and easy to follow (the summaries and quizes at the end of each chapter very helpfull), well bound and easy to read print, the pages, however, are glossy and dificult to highlight. Would strongly recomend this book as a learning resource or comprehensive tool in a classroom enviroment from highschool to an intoductory college level, integrated natural science class.
