  1. When I purchased this book, it came brand new, in a shrinkwrap with a Speech Preparation Workbook by Cynthia Brown El. Upon opening it in class, I found that the book had no binding at all, and the cover itself was just cardboard placed on top to make it presentable. Once I discovered this, it was too late to return it. The bookstore wouldn’t take it back, even in the mint condition I had it in (given that that the teacher rarely ever asked us to use the $70 books, it became a lovely predicament).

    So, I’m writing this review to warn you; purchase this book only if you believe you’re getting your money’s worth – because you may never get it back.

  2. The book itself is fine, but if you are buying this for a course that requires use of Myspeechlab, please be aware that it does not include an access code. You’ll have to shell out an extra $64 for one on the Myspeechlab site. My bookstore’s cost of $105 for both doesn’t seem like a bad deal after all….
