Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money and inaccurate If there was an option for zero stars I would have chosen that instead. Many of the so-called terms from the textbook are repeated throughout each chapter summary. Defining "Public relations" in ten different spots is not helpful. Also some terms were added with definitions not suited to the context. Perhaps just copied and pasted by someone who is not familiar with the subject matter? Campaign is continuously from an online gaming perspective which is obviously not what the textbook explores. Do not waste you money. You will get more benefit from standing in the store and flipping through this book in five minutes then you will from purchasing this piece of garbage.
