Nowhere on the ad it says that this is a book printed and published by Amazon. This has important implications for higher education students - who, incidentally, are the target audience of this book, because, really, who is going to buy Machiavelli's Discourses unless they are at university?

A student CANNOT reference this book in an essay. Being published by Amazon, this book has no serious publisher (the University of Chicago is one), no address for the publisher, no date of publishing, NO PAGE NUMBERS, thus half the information a student is supposed to insert in her essay's reference is lacking . Moreover, there is no Introduction to the book, which is needed for students to learn about the book's context. The book consists only in the text of Machiavelli, which then there is no point paying for since it can easily be found on the Internet.

In conclusion, a USELESS product for any student (aka, 90% of the users who might have an interest in buying this book).

(The book itself is incredible, and really the foundational base of modern political science - thus a must read for anyone).

However, this copy of the book is near useless.
- No page numbers
- ONLY HALF THE DISCOURSES. STOPS AFTER CHAPTER 2 OF BOOK 2?? WHERE IS BOOK 3?!
- It's A4, which is good for making notes in it, but not very good for transportation.
- No page of contents.

A good and useful book, but it looks like it was made in someone's home office.
No page number, no page formating, no introduction, no contents or index page.
Put together in an awful manner.

Always read the review first. Bought this for university to discover that it had no index, and half of the book (which I needed) was missing. What's the point in that?

I personally like it. It's quite interesting. I cannot make muvh of a comparison because it's the only version I have read.
