It's a textbook so it not surprising that it doesn't just absorb your attention... but it does supply important information with reasonable detail. I like that it gives charts and list to help with explanations.

This textbook has some good information, but it is wordy and redundant in spots. Some topics have more detail than what is needed in the real world. Chapters are too long. Make these edits, enlarge the print, and the textbook would be a better product.
