"A warm, humane little book--a scientifically informed reminder that even in college, students and teachers are really driven by emotion, anxiety, curiosity, and care."
Daniel F. Chambliss, coauthor of How College Works
"A wonderful tool for reflection on one's own teaching practice, a way to catalog one's own values and how we put them into practice in the classroom and out."
Inside Higher Ed
