Used these textbooks?

My next course, Instructional Leader as Creator of Learning Culture requires three textbooks. If you have used these books, have an opinion, or a favorite textbook source, please leave a comment.

As a grad student and a parent of a college freshman, we check out all sources for textbooks from used bookstores, online textbook rental sites, Google books, and college book swap sites because the college bookstores are overpriced. If you have a favorite textbook site or source, please share it as a comment.
