Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The idea of bringing so many types of resources together is brilliant. . . . as this all-in-one format becomes more popular in textbook publishing, both instructors and students should become familiar and comfortable with all the different features and options. A mobile device application would greatly enhance the usability and popularity of the product."

"The text is a dream come true. It is clear, precise, and well planned with more resources than you could ever wish. More texts need to be as complete as this one."

"I. . . found it to be one of the best texts I have ever used. I will use it again."

"Van Voorst and the production team have produced a very appealing text. The visuals are stunning, the writing is engaging, and the abilities and interests of the student audience are always kept in mind. By foregrounding the learning objectives and providing the resources for students to take charge of their own learning and self-assessment, instructors will have more time to make the classroom experience engaging and centered around discussion rather than presentation of factual material."
