Jeanne Ellis Ormrod often receives mail from students who have gone out of their way to let her know how much her books have impacted their academic careers. Here are just a couple of quotes Jeanne Ormrod has recently received.
“I have NEVER written to a texbook writer in all my years (20+) of attending college, but I have to tell you that your textbook was excellent! I read the entire thing, and I just want to thank you for making the material so personal that it was not only interesting, but easy to comprehend and absord! You are awesome! Had to tell you that! Keep up the good work!”
“The way that you relate almost every topic to a situation that is graspable to anybody makes it exciting to read. I even read the chapters that were left out of the curriculum, something I haven’t done in years! (I started studying in 2002). So, with this, I would like to thank you for writing a book that has opened my once closed mind. I passed all my classes last semester, without you and your fantastic teaching device I do not think I would have gotten back on my feet again, I see the light in the end of the academic tunnel now.”
