"The text is organized the BOK (Body of Knowledge), which is logical. The text is explained up front and then proceeds to develop the topics as outlined. It is easy to follow and comprehensive--well written.The pedagogical materials are well thought out. The author has a good sense of how to bring students along in their understanding. All of the tools I would look for as an instructor are there. I like the glossaries--learning terminology is half the battle in understanding this discipline.Excellently written. The author is clear, concise, has organized the material well--I like this book!"
