Description

    Despite being priced like a real book, and bearing the imprint of what you might be tempted to think is a reputable publisher, this item is obviously "repurposed" from some file without the publisher troubling to confirm that the text displays correctly. Don't waste your money, and take a close look at the sample from any other book from this house.
