"The organizational scheme is logical. The sequenced chapters are progressively arranged with student learning in mind. At the initial, the author grasps the reader’s attention with the catchy topics.”
— Charlene Tuckerson, John F. Kennedy University
“The chapter checkup, the key terms with corresponding page numbers, and the chapter highlights at the end of each chapter are quite helpful.”
— Cecilia Moore-Cobb, Pitt Community College
“A wide variety of examples and analogies is one of the book's many strengths. Specifically, references to pop culture help students readily identify with the material.”
