From the Publisher:

With its active "learn–by–doing" approach, this textbook establishes the skills needed for learning and career and life achievement. Critical thinking techniques improve students' effectiveness in school and the workplace. These skills serve as a continual source of information and inspiration. Positive self–awareness, confidence, and responsibility are fostered by building skills in goal–setting, problem–solving, decision–making, wellness, basic academic skills, study skills, and communication. Students learn to manage their time and their budgets. They will establish strong foundations in ethics and relations with people at home, at school, and at work. The text is both affirming and challenging to students, encouraging them to reach new heights.
