The book is about the size of a toy instruction manual and as thick as 2 dvd cases, so it's fairly small sized, easy to carry. The book itself has very little marks, so it's in really good conditions for being a rental book. It's exactly the book my Argumentation and Debate class was requiring.
The quality of the book rental I received was good. I just very much dislike the book. The author makes the context unnecessarily difficult.
This is not a great textbook. There are no headings breaking up the chapters like in normal textbooks, the examples are confusing, and the terms are not consistent. It seems like this was a doctorate thesis that was adjusted and sold as a textbook.
It's a textbook. At least we could rent it for the kindle app. She only needed it for the midterm.
The text arrived well before my semester started and was in great condition. It is a dry read for those who are not particularly into law jargon, but it is very easy to follow and can serve as a great guide to increasing your critical thinking skills.
This book is dry as toast. I read it for an argumentation and persuasion class at city college. It's bearable, but I wouldn't read it for fun. It does offer tools on how to step your game up for argumentation/persuasion... But I don't think the book is applicable outside of academia (personal opinion).
very expensive and boring
