This book is expensive because it's so terrible, and part of a set.

After reading through a few chapters of this for a required class, I could no longer deny my theory that this book was written by a speaker of English as a second language using Microsoft Word's grammar check to make the sentences technically grammatically correct. It is a difficult to read mess with awkward non-standard grammatical structures, and obvious ESL mistakes like "the pilot of a ship" while also trying to seem like a college level book by improperly using a thesaurus to pick the most awkward equivalents that are long out of use in standard English.
