Hello from England. I received the book today, and just wanted you to know that I'm really happy with it -- its condition is really amazing, and a lot better than I had hoped. It also happens to be a really excellent book, which helps. I also wanted to say thanks for the great packaging: it's surprisingly often that companies don't pack their books properly and they end up getting damaged during the shipping process! Kind regards, - Hannah W.
