At initial glance, the book seems to be of great quality--however, the way in which it was delivered as much to be desired. Left in the open rain, the delivery serice (UPS) not only failed to deposit it at the front door--as customery, but five days past their estimated delivery date. Although the package was drenched, fortunately, it appears that I got to it in time--though the pages are a little warped (given the dampness), I am attempting to let it dry and pressing it down with heavier books in the hope that it will restore it to what I suspect was it original good quality. Had it been a soft cover--and not the hard cover that it was, I am sure it would have been utterly destroyed. With that said, I am otherwise pleased with the product itself, though profoundly disappointed in how it was delivered. Had it not been for the incompetent/unprofessional delivery--this product (more than likely) would have received a higher rating from me. As it stands, the rating was adversely affected given the condition in which I received the final product, which I am sure started off in superior condition, but did not remain so by the time it came to me.
