"The book is just fabulous, straight-forward, not lofty-but still elegant, grounded. I searched carefully for a text to support my methods, and was disappointed by many. I enjoy that the text contains relatively little jargon, clear definitions of terms in common use and the vignettes are practical." -- Karen Sue Rolph 20070716
