"This is a very interesting concept. It addresses a number of concerns, including the high cost of textbooks and the reality of the reading habits of the majority of today's students,"- R.F. Bieker, Instructor with Delaware State University
"The author's writing style is very appealing to today's undergraduate economics students. This should provide the spark necessary to engage students in classroom discussions."- J. Koscianski, Instructor with Shippensburg University
"I like the intentional blending of the on-line tools with the text. It seems like a very intentional product design that I haven't seen with other text books where the on-line supplements seem very clunky."- J. Ingelman, Instructor with Cleveland Community College
