Reviews - What do customers think about The Hegel Reader (Blackwell Readers)?
Great book! Jun 2, 2008
This is a great book. Required for my class. You can probably find this book a few bucks cheaper. I rather pay the extra dough and save on time and hassle wasted like waiting in line during the beginning days of school or waiting for the auction to end or hoping the seller ships your book to get it before the beginning weeks of class. Just save time and sanity and purchase from this site.
