"I do think this text has great potential for adoption. I like it very much; it is a fresh approach to difficult issues and confronts the candidate with what they need to know and understand about themselves before they can begin to work with others."
"One of the most forward-thinking, straight-talking introductory texts on diversity in the field today."
"The best thing about it for me is that I would probably feel [okay] to just use this one text as the major and the one other text as a supporting text, rather [than] using -- and having my students buy -- three books."
"I think it is informative and engaging. The exercises and practical applications are great.... This is absolutely a text that I would choose to use."
