Review:

"I particularly like the Awareness Checks and use them to launch each chapter. The textbook is well organized and the layout is easy for the students to follow. It definitely is what my students need and I don't see any weaknesses."-- Dale S. Haralson, Hinds Community College

"I love the text. It is filled with a variety of exercises and experiences for the student from the way the text flows with the presentation of topics to examples, applications, confidence builders, exercises, group activities, and my personal favorite the "reflections" on the chapter."-- Karen S. Mayse, Central Christian College of Kansas
