  1. I simply don’t believe that college textbooks increased by 186% in 2004 alone!

    The graph surely represents cumulative increase since 1986, but it does so in a rather sloppy way.

  2. Yes, that’s what it looks like, but the graph is labelled ‘annual percentage increased’.

    The data might well be correct, but when it’s presented in such a sloppy fashion it’s hard to take it seriously.

  3. What a great, unintentional example of the kinds if poor presentation you are likely to get without a professional author and editorial team. You don’t see this in professional textbooks. Perhaps you do get what you pay for.

    • You must not follow the same textbook publishing circles I do. This kind of mistake is less uncommon in paid textbooks than you might think.

      And what makes you say that the folks who release an OEM textbook aren’t pros?
