Great book for my class and I love how i can highlight on my iPad mini I os 7. I never have to carry a heavy book around ever again.
This book contains the info needed, it is very readable and clear. Not much confusing jargon. Not so much “opinion” but more usable facts and information. I rarely give 5 stars so 4 stars is high praise from me…esp. regarding a textbook.
