Review:

"I firmly believe the writing style is appropriate for all students. Examples are clear and to the point. The concepts are explained well and supported with easy to understand examples."

"...The topics are presented in a clear and logical manner. I have used this text for at least eight years and recommend it very highly. Accordingly, my students are very satisfied and the recent format changes (i.e., shaded illustrations) have made the text more aesthetically appealing."

"(Pedagogy) is the strong element of the textbook and I reviewed several texts and this textbook is by far the best in this area."
