Textbook reviews

Dear list members:

Where can I go to see reviews of textbooks in calculus/precalculus?

This unavailability of textbook reviews is a dirty un-American commie
plot to undermine informed choice of one of the most sacred things in
our
society: textbooks.

Considering that I must select a text that costs around $100 from the
few that the very largest publishers see fit to send me, I think it's a
shame.
Even if I spent the time reading through the few I do get I'd still
make a
bad decision because they're filled with so much fluff and distracting

pictures that I get confused. <sigh>

I'll probably re-order the crummy book I used last year
(Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen) though I don't like it very much. I'm so
frustrated
I'm about to do something really violent, like use a text by Click and
Clack,
the tappet brothers.
