Editorial Reviews

The pedagogical features of the text are very informative, relevant and are sure to be of a benefit both to the students as well as to the instructors. I believe this text would meet the needs and abilities of the students we teach too. It delves into the physiological explanations needed, but then explains them in more common language terms. WELL DONE!! -John Oke, triOS College The manner in which the text has been presented makes it easy to pick and choose core material for general use. I feel that the additional material and references make the book a valuable long term reference for students well pass the completion of the academic course of study. I would certainly recommend this text for use in future courses. It not only provides for the basics I need to teach for the course but it also provides a lifelong reference for the student not just a book to purchase for a course then sell to the next student. -James Michael Kirk, Everest College — Hamilton City Centre Campus I would suggest it to those that are considering applying to a police service (they wouldn’t even need to be in a program to benefit from it). -Jo Ann Rutledge, York Regional Police
