No, because I've had a problem with getting Amazon to take back defectives. If it's their fault, like the book that came looking like it had been through a lawnmower, they offered a reduced price instead (which I took). Sometimes they've been known to charge postage for returns, and, frankly, I just didn't want to deal with it.
I, too, find it amazing that only 1 book out of a bazillion missed its trip through the glue machine. Agreed it COULD happen, but it doesn't seem all that likely to me...
My biggest problem with the book, though, was the choice of verbage. As the parent, I found the use of such words as "abnormal" terribly offensive.
I think I'll try this one in my next order. http://www.amazon.com/Extraordinary-Dog ... rhf_shvl_2
