    One of my favorite textbooks!

    This was a great text. Normally, I go through school textbooks with the intention of selling them back at then end of the semester. However, I will definitely keep this book for reference. It's very well-written and comprehensive. The material is explained in a relevant and easily comprehensible manner. There are many useful examples and "real-life cases" throughout the chapters to aid in comprehension of difficult concepts. It was also wonderful that the author of the book was also my professor!
