Bought for a class that did not materialize I purchased this text for a class that failed to garner the needed number of students. I decided to keep the book anyhow and read through it with the hopes it may be offered in another semester or I would possible be allowed to test out of the course. I find the text most interesting and readable. The information is logically arranged and easy to follow. As an ex-educator I feel it would be easy to structure a course of study based on this text. Only hope our university offers this course again…
