Maguire, Clarion University of Pennsylvania This is one of my students' favorite textbooks. I hear about how much they like it all the time. It is easy to follow and very inviting to the reader. Specific topics are easy to find when my students have concerns in their own classrooms. They use the textbook as a reference long after the course is completed. -- Kathleen J. Sanders, Fort Hays State
