By steve
Format:Paperback
After ordering this book second hand from the seller i waited and waited for a despatch date. Nothing. I emailed twice, nothing. i had to wait for the system to cancel the order so that i could buy the book from a reliable source. I have missed two assignments waiting for this book and am extremely disappointed by the rude way this seller acted.
