Meh. Fair, but nothing spectacular. Used the 13th edition.

ETA: And now I'm using the 14th edition. I'm still trying to see what on earth they've changed that required a new edition. Also, one of the James D. Lesters credited above should have a Jr. after his name.

ETA2: I'm now up through chapter 12 in an 18 chapter book, and all the changes thus far have been cosmetic: changing fonts, choosing different colors for headings, the occasional slightly rephrased sentence. I am growing highly suspicious.

Well, I have now finished. And there was absolutely no reason why they needed to update over the previous edition with this. It's essentially identical except for a few changes that mess enough with page numbers so they no longer match. This sort of ruse to make students buy new texts and limit the reselling of used books, all while charging truly ridiculous prices for the text, really gets me mad.
