By Mary - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The good news: The content of the book looks very useful (although it's quite small).
The bad news: It came with a CD-ROM with MP3 files instead of the two audio CD's advertised on Amazon. In addition, the CD-ROM is quite scratched up and is clearly not new. For $28, I was hoping for a useable product. I didn't open this until two months after I bought it, so I can no longer return it. Wish I could contact the authors to get the audio CD's.
