Here is my view on this book. This book is okay to mediocre at best. This book is very dry. Theirs way too many features and stuff in it thats completely uncessary. It has way too much reading and alot of unecessary details. It basically is a very time consuming and overrated textbook that needs a competitor that can produce a more reader friendly text than this. If you don't need this for your class, don't bother getting it, I love to read, and even this book I cringe reading. It feels like a decade has passsed when you're done. Don't get this overpriced book if you don't need to.
