I was originally VERY skeptical because I’ve seen many sites that write fake reviews about themselves. But I took the risk of $15 and the site turns out to completely legitimate. As soon as my payment info went through, I got a download link and downloaded my book instantly. Definitely impressed by the low price as well considering Amazon had my book ‘Cengage Advantage Books: Introduction to Sociology” listed at $21 for an eBook rental. While now I own the book for only 15. Thanks again Janet and Panther Books team for your assistance and service provided you all definitely helped a graduating senior out.
