“Thought provoking . . . A wonderful text to help students develop critical thinking skills as they are applied to our profession . . . The illustrative examples—particularly from the author’s own work—are very helpful for understanding the proposed concepts and give them real-world relevance. . . . This content is critical to our profession—and world—moving forward.”
