What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The book is well-organized, clear and relevant; laid out as a mix of text and more 'interactive' sections where students can record their achievements towards the completion of a particular task/development of a new skill.' - Jenni Grundy, Anglia Ruskin University, UK
