Review:

I found the examples interesting, complete, and not overly simplified, while not being so complex that students become lost in them. They were very well prepared and well written.

The Ethics boxes in particular caught my interest. They all contained scenarios unlike the usual ethical problems in textbooks, where the dilemma is almost obvious, and the students can (very self righteously) say that "of course" they'd do the right thing.

I like the changes to the exercises section. It seems there are plenty of small exercises that demonstrate the key learning objectives.

The 4-Step Decision Model is an excellent tool for developing my students' critical thinking skills while solving end-of-chapter problems. They can apply their hands-on experience using the model in other college classes and in their careers.
