Our customer reviews

I purchased this book having foolishly taken the bibliographic data supplied by Book Depository for this item at face value. This is NOT a Tempus publication but rather a cheap and nasty digital reprint put out by some outfit calling itself 'Knowledge Leak'. The quality of this reprint is appalling - it looks like a bad photocopy made using a photocopier whose ink cartridge needs replacing and the paper feels and looks like a wad of home-office quality A4, just to complete that sinking feeling of "F**k me! I've just paid good money for a cheap photocopy I could have printed myself at home or at work! The bastards!'. If you want to buy a crude, poorly made and produced photocopy of this book this version is for you - if you want to save your money for a book that actually looks and feels like a book go to Abe books and try and track down the 2007 Tempus first edition.show more
