I just received my book today, and I wanted to thank you for the very prompt shipping. I was especially happy (and a little surprised) to see that you upgraded the shipment to UPS Ground. As to the condition of the book you are right; it is a solid Very Good, at least. Thank you all around for your professionalism. - J.N.
