“I think it is the best text for this course because of the experiential approach. Excellent readability. The Applying the Concepts, Self-Assessments, workplace application questions, and the Skill Builders are exceptional, engaging, and provide personal, real world contexts.”

Lynn Klein

“The range of topics covered is excellent and topical. I like the layout and the flow of material. In my view the level of detail is very appropriate. In particular, the mix of theory and application are very well linked. The exercises are very helpful in developing an action learning approach that will benefit the student”
