    Don’t just take our word for it.

    Since the third edition of An Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation published we've received outstanding feedback on the text and accompanying resources.  Here's what customers had to say:

    "Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation, Third Edition is very well constructed for an introductory class and covers practical forensic topics not seen in other publications."
    —Wayne Wallace, PhD, University of Cincinnati

    "An Introduction to Crime Scene Investigation, by Aric W. Dutelle is a rare gem in today's crowded textbook market. While other texts focus on the tools available to crime scene investigators, Dutelle goes a step beyond – by explaining the overall investigative process. Along with careful instructions on how to conduct a successful investigation, he warns of the pitfalls that can interfere with an accurate reconstruction of the criminal event.

    We conducted extensive market reviews prior to publishing a sixth edition of the best-selling Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology. Here’s what some of our reviewers had to say:

    "The Botany and Beyond and the Plants and People sections are excellent! I especially appreciate the diversity of topics, and the direct application, and the clarity of writing."

    "I would definitely anticipate using a sixth edition of this text. I felt the text had most of what I wanted in a textbook."

    "The section on plant structure I find to be the single strongest area of the book and the area I feel sets it apart from the competitors."

    Hear What Your Peers Have to Say About Understanding Viruses

    Posted by Lindsay White on Mar 8, 2017 12:36:58 PM

    Don't just take our word for it.

    We conducted extensive market reviews prior to publishing a third edition of the internationally acclaimed Understanding Viruses. Here's what some of our reviewers had to say:

    "I am impressed with the author's ability to include topical information, basic biology, and clinical relevance. This begins in the first chapter and is consistent throughout. This text fills a major gap between advanced virology and introductory biology texts… This text is the perfect blend of clinical virology, epidemiology, taxonomy, replication dynamics, and pathophysiology."

    "I really like this textbook. The approach to viruses corresponds to my thoughts of needing to know about the interaction of the virus and the host and not just the diseases that they cause."

    Posted by Lindsay White on Nov 10, 2015 1:55:20 PM

    In planning for an eighth edition of our best-selling introductory astronomy text for the non-science major, we conducted a revision survey with instructors who are currently or have very recently used the text in their course and instructors who have not adopted the current Seventh Edition. Of the instructors surveyed:

    • 100% of reviewers who are currently using the seventh edition plan to continue using the book and would anticipate adopting a revised edition once it’s available.
    • 3 of 4 reviewers who are not currently using the seventh edition would strongly consider adopting a revised edition once it’s available.
