2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Read 3 Jun 2014
By Paul S. Heath - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My teacher assigned this book for our class and it is one of the hardest and driest books to read. I feel like every chapter is the same and I am reading a slightly different versions of chapter one. To top it off I have to take a quiz on the information. Even the powerpoints that accompany the book are 55 slides or more.
I think this book suffers mainly from lazy writing and lazy editing. If this book had been properly edited it would have been a third of the size that it is and the student would walk away with the meat of the subject instead of a little meat and a whole lot of fat.
