First thing when you open this book, is a two page chart outlining all of the personality theories. Now that is what I like to see!
The subject matter of this book is not my focus in school, so some of the material is a struggle. The condition of the book itself is wonderful! I bought it used and only found one underlined word in the entire book! The pages are entact, as is the cover and spine. I will keep this seller in mind for my upcoming needs in college books!
