Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Acclaim for the previous edition:
"I like the way the chapters are written - student friendly without sacrificing academic rigour."
--Margaret Conway, London Metropolitan

"Completing the puzzle is really good and would be a very useful teaching tool and resource.
"--Sarah Hardy, Liverpool John Moores

"Very useful. Example boxes (in other books) have tended to focus on abstract concepts, using a realistic example will be very useful in directing students minds to what they should be identifying as potential problems."
--Catrin Huws, Aberystwyth

"Thinking points are excellent in highlighting the key issues."
--Lesley Lomax, Sheffield Hallam
