“The book was designed to follow a different approach for the learners,” Celik added. “This approach was influenced by Fink’s taxonomy of significant learning, which unlike the other taxonomies is not hierarchical, but instead interactive.”

The textbook’s features include learning objectives, global perspective, in-chapter examples, Python programming language, real-world applications, case studies, suggested further learning resources, classroom debates, end-of-chapter exercises, and video recordings of select problem solutions.

The book is available for purchase on Cambridge University Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goodreads.
