I pre-ordered this book as I am sure it covers the subject very well.
However, when it eventually arrived I was very dissappointed by how thin the paper was.
This may sound like a trivial complaint, but I have never held a book of so many pages that was nevertheless so 'floppy' as a result of the exceptionally thin paper used.
Certainly, for a book costing over £40 pounds I expected more.
It is possible that I received a version that was uusual in this regard, but for reasons of durability I returned the copy I had received and will wait until I find a copy I can examine before purchase to ensure that it is printed on 'normal' paper.
To give you an idea, the paper was lighter than even the cheapest A4 pad you can find.
At least with free delivery and a good returns policy you can try before you decide with Amazon.
