Still reading, I believe it will answer a lot of questions about community dynamics that have long puzzled me. After completing the book I may contact the author to discuss specifics.

They author used proper APA in-text citations, but they were so lengthy and numerous that you would read one sentence followed by a citation and two more sentences and another lengthy citation. The authors did provide solid examples of real life experience and research results that made the material seem salient and meaningful. This is the first edition and the book has a solid foundation, but I hope the next edition is a bit more user-friendly.
