For Now 3 Stars This is an initial review based on first impressions. I intend to update my review in a few weeks.The three-star rating is based on the physical quality of the book.CON:– The physical quality of the book makes me wonder about its longevity.– The binding is good, but the color pages are very thin. How thin?…about as thin as a Bed Bath and Beyond sales circular or a weekly coupon circular in the Sunday paper.– There can be no highlighting as any…

NASM training book We lost our book that we purchased with our program, and this was exactly the same. It is what you think it is.
