    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I purchased this because my original purchase never arrived from another seller on Amazon. I had never purchased anything for a Kindle, but downloaded the free app to convert my phone to a Kindle, purchased the book and I was ready for my course! What a lifesaver!

    This is a required book for a doctoral course I took. Otherwise I never would have purchased it. Pretty much everything in it I learned during my masters degree program, or could have found online in various places for free.
