""Wiley's latest may lay claim to being the most inclusive - both in breadth and depth - with this excellent reference. Kutz has successfully sought to include more ""authoritative discussions, real-world examples, and insightful analyses. It is the addition of this extra text that will find appreciative readers, especially those relatively new to a topic."" (American Reference Books Annual, 2008)
