Reviews and Testimonials

The chapters in these volumes stand well on their own. The advantage is that it puts articles together in one place for easy searchability instead of having to look for individual articles and information. If shelf space is an issue or if your faculty and students don’t like to step in the library, the electronic version may be a better choice. The cost is a bit hefty, but if the budget allows and there is an interest in the topic, this is a good purchase.
