Review "I find the text to be very comprehensive and user friendly. Students will appreciate the conclusions" -- Mary-Theresa Howard "The text is comprehensive and is written in a student friendly manner. The content is current (which speaks to students). I particularly like the research boxes that can be used as assignments.
