I agree with "a college student," the class discussions were very distracting! 
Guest More than 1 year ago
I would have given it five stars, but the example class discussions were terrible. I'm a college student and I have never been in a class where everyone was so happy-go-lucky and full of energy all the time. Please, tone it down a little in the next edition. It's distracting. However, the information that is presented in the book is invaluable, and based on this fact alone I would recommend it to anyone.
