## Critical view

**DO NOT BUY THE HYBRID EDITION OF THIS TEXT.**

The questions are not included. You need to go online to get them, with an access code that you get from your course tutor. The upshot of it is that you will **not be able to sell this book** at the end of your semester. **YOU ARE BEING RIPPED OFF!!!**

If you are tempted to start a course which requires that the purchase of the "Hybrid" edition, **change college immediately, as a matter of urgency**, and if you can possibly manage it, **change your nation of domicile**.
