Customer Book Reviews



I never had problems buying from Amazon, and when I do buy, I always buy strictly from Amazon because I feel that what they describe the product as will be correct. However I was very disaapointed with this purchase because the desrciption said the book was BRAND NEW however once I got it and began reading it, I found underlining and writing in it! So, this book was obviosly used and they passed it off as new. For the amount of money spent on this book, I am very disappointed.

Great book for any intro into social work class.


We used the book all the time. Very easy to understand and comprehend. I passed the class no problems by using the book.

Required Textbook


My daughter needed this book and as is with anything today that is a requirement such as a college textbook the prices are way nuts. My daughter was only given 7 days notice that she was accepted that semester so we had to scramble. Amazon had a good price compared to some others and the books were delivered promptly.

Excellent condition!!!


This was a book that I needed for a course, and this was an excellent purchase for the price that I got it at!!!!
