"It is very rare to read a textbook and not want to put it down; a unique situation I found myself in as I read Practically Speaking. It is a refreshing textbook that reads more like an informative narrative without succumbing to the fate of being simply entertainment. The text does not speak down to students; it talks to them and engages them in a way that only a good storyteller could do. All-in-all, this book is a great read!"
--Matthew Sciarrino, St. John's University
