I really do like the book. I think it is clear, well written and
follows a developmental approach of what students experience in
I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I like this book! It's really exceptional in its completeness and timeliness. It is well written, easy to read and understand, full of examples and exercises, and very relevant for our students right now.
