I got the international edition, which is exactly the same as the US edition. I can legitimately say this is one of the most boring books I've ever read. The layout is not inviting whatsover. The content is informative and useful, but presented drying and in a thoroughly uninteresting way. If I didn't need to have this specific book for class, I would've bought a different book on the same content.

One of the worst textbooks I've ever had. The articles are redundant and too wordy. The authors take a paragraph to get across a point that can be made with one sentence. The language and word choice also makes the readings difficult to comprehend without reading more than once. I wouldn't recommend that instructors choose this textbook. It seems that you are reading a paper where the writer is merely stating and arguing their opinion rather than presenting facts.

This text is definitely not your run of the mill textbook. It offers insightful discussion and promotes critical debate. I'd recommend it for ANYONE who wants a better understanding of how our educational system got to where it's at now.
