From the Back Cover:


“This is an excellent book. After reading so many that are not, or are at best just adequate, this book really tries (and most often succeeds) to reach the student-a seemingly often forgotten part of the intro text equation. The chapters are sensible, well paced, and well organized. The use of graphic modules throughout will be very effective. It was a brilliant idea.”

—Dr. M.C.Schraefel, University of Victoria

“The material is very readable, clear, rich in terms of examples, excellent learning format, and so forth. I really like the presentation.”

—Alan L. Eliason, Graduate School of Management at Willamette University
