    1. I am reading this for a class and wishing that I had read it before teaching kids! This is going to be good

    2. Nice introduction - but of course a textbook and meant for students with lots of literature in the reference. This is not a blink-think-hat-thingy bestseller, lol.If you want to work on that subject it will get you started.

    3. This book is used as as textbook in some universities. FYI, there's also a version that includes a workbook.
