Our customer reviews

Received a defective book. Page tear and extra binded torn page, missing pages 17 to 32. Otherwise the contents of the book are really good. Would have rated it 5 based on the content alone, but due to the binding issues it surely doesn't deserve that. Book replacement sent very quickly. Excellent customer more
