"I like the real-world examples interlaced in the problems and prose. In particular, it is refreshing that the authors admit that the mathematical models take into account several assumptions in order to establish a frame of reference or starting point in solving them."

— Professor William Christian, James Madison University

"The level of difficulty of the examples is varied, so that some examples are quite readily absorbed, whereas others require deeper study. The examples are nicely designed to lead into the exercise sets that follow them."

— Professor Thomas Schriber, University of Michigan

"In fact, the exercises are graded (not formally) in their level of difficulty, and there are plenty of them, giving the instructor plenty of room to assign a subset of the exercises that the instructor deems to be appropriate for the backgrounds and skill levels of the students studying from the book."

— Professor Thomas Schriber, University of Michigan
