As with communism, school bussing, and legalized abortion, either you're for this manual, or you're not. Either you're for its placing much of the responsibility for learning upon you, the reader, or you're not. (Indeed, the reading requires more than usual concentration.)

Either you're for its comparing your responses in simulated situations with those of the authors, or you're not. Either you're for its inclusion of only a few references, or you're not.
Me? I'm for it!
