"I think Models, Metaphors, and Maps (brings the theories) alive and does an excellent job of having an active and rich conversation with the reader. I think students will enjoy this book and because the theories are operationalized, this will help students visualize how to use theories."
"Extremely well presented, very logical and organized, easy to read, appealing for students, provides handles for the understanding and application of theory. Sufficient detail without becoming burdensome. Makes theory come alive."
