The book itself works as the chapter pages are there but the book has the front page missing (I think) and the book has damaged on the edges. Assuming from too many users using the book.. For the amount of money I paid to rent this book I would have thought it would be in perfect condition. But I said I''m able to read the chapters and the book is complete other than the 1st cover page
