About the Author:

David Johnson earned a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology (with an emphasis on Learning Theory), from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and a Master's degree in Mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley. After several years working as an academic counselor at Berkeley, he became a Professor of Mathematics at Diablo Valley College (DVC). He has taught DVC's liberal arts math course regularly for about 25 years, using Mathematics a Practical Odyssey. Other favorite courses include Intermediate Algebra, all three semesters of Calculus, and Differential Equations.

Review:

"A thorough, easy reading, liberal arts text that covers the major topics in good detail; has an ample selection of exercises and examples; and includes several additional topics that can be covered if desired."

"I think that the order of the sections is very distinct. It was one of the main reasons that we initially chose the book because the first 5 chapters were our exact course. I also think that it is more cohesive than other texts. Other publishers seems to just stick in new chapters from edition to edition without making sure the notation is the same or the vocabulary is the same, one of the nicest differences about this book is that it just feels like a lot of thought was put into it."
