From the book reviews:

"It is rare that such a broad spectrum of research and theory-based discussion about one piece of software or curriculum is gathered in one volume. ... For those who are interested in theory and research involving SimCalc, it provides a wealth of background on which to build the next generation of research. Those with more general interests in technology-intensive mathematics education would profit from seeking general messages about technology-centered learning from the particular case of SimCalc." (M. Kathleen Heid, Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, Vol. 46 (1), January, 2015)
