Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sixth Edition I found it hard to decipher what edition this textbook was because of the lack of photo and information. I wanted everyone to know that this is the 6th Edition, published in 2010, 426 Pages, paperback, and very useful. It is Canadian and includes a lot of Canadian information, which is refreshing. As for the way it is written, definitions are included within the text, the follow-up questions are relevant, and the first-person examples are a nice break for the information overload. Worth the purchase, as it discusses future trends that will be expected as the Baby Boomers age so it will be useful for a least a decade :)
