2.0 out of 5 stars Short change for the Wealth of Nations?, 2 Oct 2009
The product is fine as far as it goes, but the trouble is it doesn't go far enough.

What the catalogue entry fails to mention is that this edition of The Wealth of Nations, unlike its two-volume paperback competitor, includes only Books I-IV. It is only once you have got hold of the book, and have read almost to the end of the Introduction, that you find that Book V has been omitted "to keep the cost down". Book V essentially contains the information for which my copy was purchased. Had I known this in advance, I would probably have purchased the two-volume paperback edition, thus adding to Mr Amazon's income stream.

Alternatively, you can do as I did and download Book V (or indeed the whole thing) free of charge to read on your ebook or your PC.

I have no complaints about Amazon's service, which worked very well.
