"(Weiten 's chapter 2) The author exhibits enthusiasm and academic seriousness in a writing style that is clear, concise and purposeful. Explanations are thorough but there are not wasted words. Overall, I am impressed with the organization and cohesiveness found throughout the chapter. It is clear that the author not only has a plan but he actually follows it."<br><br><br><br>"The 'Critical Thinking Application ' at the end of each chapter is on e of my favorite parts of the textbook. The author has done an excellent job of selecting issues that students can relate to in their daily lives."
