User’s Reviews

I bought this book for my microbiology class. The book that they wanted us to get is the hardback US version but the international one was a lot cheaper. As far as I can tell, there is no difference except maybe very miniscule things like page numbers, some case studies, and some numbers related to finances. The core text is the exact same and the paperback cover is still pretty sturdy. I highly recommend getting this version to save a decent chunk of money, especially if you only need this book for one semester.

Not impressed at all. The spine was extreamly beat up and 2 inches of the bottom was ripped off. I literally unwrapped the book and opened the cover and what little was holding the cover to the pages split off. Then a month in or so when i couldn’t avoid it and actually had to read a chapter, the pages that were attached to whatever was left of the brittle seperated spine started coming off. I actually had to fix the book myself just for the 4 times I couldn’t avoid using it. I had to use clear packing tape to make sure the front cover wouldn’t remove itself from the back one, and I just ordered Books by hand PVA non acidic glue to try to attempt to put the spine back together. All in all I spent more money fixing the book then renting it.
