$35 · Business and Professional Writing

Very good, near-new condition. Used lightly within a two-month period. Practically pristine, new condition other than a light fold dent on the back cover that a borrower accidentally made near the end of the used period (more of a personal peeve).
A required textbook in Vancouver Island University course. A very well-written and valuable reference and manual for any good non-essay writing even outside of class.
