"The information is current, it is historically factual and applicable, it is easy to read and colorful. Besides being well written, The experts who wrote it, and those experts who are written about, come from many disciplines giving the reader a potentially broad and thoughtful point of view. The format is such that the book allows and even encourages greater depth of learning through discussion." -Marshelle Bergstrom University of Wisconsin Oshkosh
