This paperback book is in very good condition. The cover has marked wear at the bottom front corner, but is otherwise in very good condition with just a little wear. The pin code on the inside of the front cover for accessing the text online has been revealed, and the residue from the "scratch off" box has slightly marked the opposite page. About 6 pages (in the chapters on "Mental health and the law" and "Mental health service provision") have been marked with highlighter and pen, but the rest of the book is in very good condition - clean and tight.
