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.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2005 Fall)
This series has the look and appeal of popular websites: busy pages crowded with text boxes, color and black-and-white photos, and other informational asides. Graphic and often sensationalistic photos of diseased flesh, microscopic views of abnormal cells, and representations of unusual devices and outdated treatments are combined with sketchy information to create volumes better for browsing than research.
