Royce Adams was a faculty member at Santa Barbara City College for many years. He is the author of several best-selling reading and writing textbooks and is an active participant in the College Reading and Learning Association.Review:
"The main attraction to the text is the quality of the reading passages as well as the instruction and exercises in each chapter. We like the multi-cultural aspect of the reading passages, and the quality of the text/instruction which precedes the exercises in each chapter. Also, the progressive organization of the skills, building on earlier mastered skills is a plus. We also like the three levels of comprehension, particularly the last two chapters on affective comprehension, which most other reading texts don't even consider."
