It isn't a horrible textbook. Gets very wordy at points and can be difficult to navigate as it does often tie in older topics with new ones, which is great, but can make searching for particular items for a paper difficult.
How does one review a textbook? It was readable and informative. Since this was for an online course, I knew I was going to have to read the whole thing and since that would take away from my pleasure reading, I decided to count it. Didn't quite get it finished before the semester ended because of writing papers -- just skipped around in the last few chapters. I am glad to have gone back and read the parts I skipped while on summer break. I learned a few things in the final reading.
