This book is awesome, well written, and well organized. If you are at all interested in the bigger picture of concepts pertaining to nursing, then this is your read. If you are a student in a theory/concepts class - get this book. It will be incredibly useful for papers, debates etc. Thank you Dr. Gaskamp for requiring this text.
