I think the book is okay but too expensive for the size and the information it has. I already had a professionalism class that was basically the same thing, just not a medical version.I found Therapeutic Communications to be a better book.

I needed this book for a class. The book was fine but the CD that came with it was terrible. It didn't save or print my work. It kept freezing and an error message kept popping up. Once the error message popped up it would kick me out and every time I tried to get back on it it would keep kicking me out. Some other students in my class was having the same problem.

The book is as expected, all common sense. Unfortunately it's always assigned reading, but it's a quick read at least.

One teeth-grinding feature of this book is Ms. Makely's constant habit of putting quotes around phrases (e.g., "prove yourself", "free labor", "press your buttons") -- phrases that don't need quotes. Someone needs to tell her that this has the effect in readers' minds of casting doubt on whatever is being said -- it's as though she's saying, "I don't believe what I'm writing" or maybe "I think what I am writing here is beneath me, but I'll write it anyway."

Another (and probably worse) is the tendency to lecture as though her audience is a bunch of PINS (persons in need of supervision), especially the places where she lobs rhetorical question after rhetorical question, implying the reader is no doubt the laziest, sloppiest person imaginable. These harangues are insulting and disrespectful.

Finally, the CD is out of date -- it claims to work on a Macintosh, but it sure doesn't on mine.

This was cheaper here than at the college campus bookstore. It was just what I needed for class.. I have no complaints or concerns.
