I like the way the author used various people to make comments about being from different backgrounds and or cultures. Also the first page of each chapter has focus questions that are a usefull learning tool to prepare for the context that follows. The key concepts with page numbers in the summary provide for a map or outline that can simplify remembering all that you read.
