I found this textbook to be very interesting and enjoyable. The textbook is easy to read and Kozols writing style makes it easy for anyone to pick up this textbook and be both captured with his discussion as well as being able to fully understand everything he is trying to convey in his textbook. I would recommend this textbook to anyone who wants to jump into a textbook and instantly become addicted to it. It was absolutely fabulous.
