    Happy with book, not packaging.

    I purchased this book as a gift. I think the recipient will be very pleased with it. Due to a terrible packaging job it arrived with all corners bent up. I returned it for another copy. It was also poorly packaged and damaged. I have made many purchases from B&H over the years but maybe they shouldn't sell books if they can't be bothered to packaged them as well as they package their electronics.
