"The students really appreciate the excellent print quality, all the great pictures and their layout and how the pictures relate to the words. And last but not least, it's affordable. They can't believe they are getting such a well done book for a "fair" price. Compared to other authors who are charging an arm and a leg for less substantial works, you are a diamond in the ruff."
-Steve Sweitzer, Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis and past President of the National Press Photographers Association
