Well I was a little disappointed when receiving my book. It was packaged well so it was not damaged in shipping but it came marked up. I bought this new that way it could be pristine but unfortunately it is not. It does not effect the use of the book so it is not that bad but it was disappointing. I still think I will learn at least some information from the book's content so I believe it was worth the purchase.
