– Protoview Reviews

The chapters do well to summarize the material, which can be quite technical at times, and draw conclusions. Essays make generous use of paragraph headings, and may employ charts, tables, key terms and definitions, and more to guide readers. Numerous references are found at the end of each chapter as well as in a compilation at the end of the volume.
