"I would certainly be inclined to adopt this text. It greatly interests me, which gives me hope that it would inspire my students as well. Getting my students to really engage in the material can be one of the greatest challenges of teaching. This book seems as if it would do that for you."— Jennifer Bradner, Virginia Commonwealth University
"The themes that frame this reader(separation, initiation, return) are important ones and would likely inspire a good deal of interesting meaningful writing. The reader’s strengths include variety (in genre, perspective); organization and relevance, and the pedagogical features are useful."— John Esperian, Community College of Southern Nevada
"I think the emphasis of the text is excellent because it focuses on something that i believe students can really ’get a grip on’."— Cindy Moore, Indiana University-Purdue University, Fort Wayne
