"I like the informal--yet professional style--of the text. I think students do as well. It is accessible to readers of varying abilities. Jean obviously has a sense of humor that comes across in her writing."
"One of the reasons I think my colleagues in the division continue to adopt this text is because regardless of their teaching approach, the book possesses sections and characteristics they can use in class or for the basis of assignments."
