Product Description


"'The style is good, readable and clear. Having read all the chapters in succession, the style kept my attention very well...I think this book meets a need and is well-written and accessible. I like the examples provided to illustrate each aspect and these really bring to life the particular issues being discussed. - Marilyn Farmer, Senior Lecturer, Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College 'The book is competently written and presented with a wide subject coverage. It tackles some interesting topics that other books fail to address. The balance between theory and practice is one of the books' key strengths.' - Samantha Lynch, University of Kent" --Samantha Lynch, University of Kent"
