“Yes! It [the content] definitely follows an organized pattern which I feel makes sense to the students. There is continuity as material in some of the first few chapters is mentioned in later chapters.”
“I will certainly keep using this text.”
--Sandi Nesbitt, University of Guelph-Humber
“There are very few Canadian content text books that are current and clearly presented. I think that is one of the strengths of the book. It is also clearly laid out as a textbook. One of the strengths is the discussion questions.”
--Professor, Concordia University
“[The advantages this book has over its competition is] it is Canadian and it is current!”
