"The topics chosen to illustrate the principles in the text are obviously well researched and are certainly new and not “the usual” contents of textbooks. Very refreshing to see new examples discussed. A rigorous, introductory text with a wealth of scholarship in the examples cited to illustrate general principles."

Karl Aufderheide

“In the class test, students really appreciated that [the text] took a broad approach and then provided the detail. When done this way, students can get the big picture and get the details if needed.”
