Stephen Stoker of Weber State University in Ogden, UT, has taught the gamut of introductory chemistry courses, specializing in GOB, for the past 30 years. Weber State has a very large Health Professions school, and GOB is geared at students with little or no experience in chemistry (notably Allied Health and Nursing majors).
