Editorial Reviews

Review

"I'm surprised at how much I liked it. It seemed to be a little bit more 'in your face' about Texas in the real world than I anticipated. The essays are terrific."

"Very nicely done. This book does a better job of the above than most other texts I have looked at."

"I like the approach of this book and the MindTap!"
