“I can always rely on the currency of data and information in the Morales and Sheafor text. Having frequent updated editions of the text makes it an attractive text selection. Social Work is an area that is constantly changing and evolving and it is very important to have a text that presents current data and information.”
Carol J. Bridges, East Central University
