Review:

"We′ve been using it in our survey course for years and ― stunner! ― students love it! Well written and engaging, and the author is very good about Skyping in to chat with the class."

(Brian Steffen)

"...it encourages constant engagement and critical thinking. Not to mention, the examples are extremely current for our students."

(Christina C. Smith)

"Ralph’s updates are real updates, the blog he puts together makes it even more current, the students like it, and it’s perfect for an online course." 

(Ginny Whitehouse)
