"The chapter on liberal arts education is fabulous! Coming from a liberal arts institution, I find it very challenging to find a book that explains education to students from this perspective."
"The readings are substantive but short; this piques students' interests without overwhelming them. The collection of readings in each chapter model diverse thought processes instead of advocating one view of an issue. This diversity is essential for moving toward increasingly complex ways of thinking."
