Review:

The variety and diversity of topics covered is incredibly invaluable and presents complex concepts in an accessible manner. The organization of the text book, the clear structure of the chapters, and useful features (ex. 'after this chapter you will understand') makes this an excellent text for students to use independently. Spencer Potter, St Mary's College of Maryland, USA
