Editorial Reviews

  “I think that the author’s style and tone would appeal to my students. My students often tell me that they most enjoy lectures where I bring in real-world examples, use pop culture references, and just generally find ways to connect the material in class to their lives. -A Dolphin, University of Western   “I find the writing and discussion style to be innovative and possibly more accessible for young students. I personally find the use of examples from popular media refreshing and very efficient”. -I. Horvath, McGill University
