This is a textbook in the style of the commercially published books that cover every conceivable topic. The production qualities are high, but the emphasis is on teaching processes at the expense of conceptual understanding. There are hundreds of exercises in each chapter.

(*) According to OpenStax “You can edit an online copy of your book in CNX (, the same tool we use to create and edit our books.” The XML files can be individually accessed at the section level, but it is a rather daunting task to do anything more than minor modifications.
