"Again, you have written one of the best textbooks I have ever reviewed. You do a great job of using research-based material, provide clear statements describing complicated issues, provide useful summaries, and write in a way that enhances student interest and learning. In fact, I would suggest that faculty using your text end up learning even more than the students who read the book.
