Using straightforward prose while refraining from a pedantic tone, this valuable resource guides readers toward a greater understanding of the topic while providing effective strategies for coping. Self-tests, Fact or Fiction? sidebars, and up-to-date statistics and charts engage readers and encourage discussion both at home and in the classroom.
