Four star for now...
I just downloaded the sample, I know for sure that I'll find this book beneficial! This is good for refreshing my memory and possibly gaining additional insight. For around $10.00, this seems to be a good deal.
A little bother that you have
To write a review to use the book. Pretty crappy
Great book for a reasonable price.
I don't know whats wrong with other reviewers, you don't have to write a review to read the book, and if you want a sample of the book; click the "get sample" button, put in your pass code in the prompt that pops up, then the book will show up in your books.
