Review:

"I love the critical thinking sections -- they may be my favorite way the text attempts to engage the students in the practice of examining their own values and biases so that they can accurately develop their all-important personal values statement."

"The learning objectives for each chapter are concise and fulfilled throughout. Lastly, I utilize the Critical Thinking and Highlight sections as exercises and references for my students."
