Review:

The UCLA teaching team for the class we have taught for now 11 years agreed your text book will be ours next year...Biologist Rita Effros (recent recipient of the Kleimier Award) thought you covered the biology better than the other texts we have used...I love the treatment of women and ethnic elders. The strength perspective, yes!

We are all excited about using it for our 180 freshman.  Now we will be even better with your book!

 

- JoAnn Damron-Rodriguez and colleagues, UCLA
