I rented this book on a digital copy and loved it... when i had to find certain information within the book i only had to use the search/ find key which made it easier to work out. Great for what I needed it for

I needed this textbook for my class. I got the Kindle version. Great textbook. I wish that they made it available on the Kindle App on Windows 8. That is what I use to read Kindle books and wasn't able to read using this app because it is only available on the desktop version of the app or on Apple and Kindle devices.

I like the progression from ethics history to theory and application. It was an enlightening read with or without a criminal justice context. This should be a professional read for employees.
