    Mild complaint

    I wish the catalog would have disclosed the cursing in the book. Our school is very conservative and would not have chosen this book if given that information. The guide itself is laid out well and the student's discussion has been good. I like my students to experience different cultures, life lessons, and thinking outside the box, which is provided with thus selection.
