Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

The texts are so full of generalizations as to be almost useless: "If you like to eat, then Illinois is the place for you." Maps, photos, and sidebars support the texts. There are seven other new books in this series. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind.
