**NOTE TO STUDENTS**

*I wrote this book for my students. In recent years, textbook costs, like everything else, have increased exponentially. I published this book as an Open Educational Resource, so students did not need to purchase yet another expensive textbook. I hope you enjoy this video textbook. It is my gift to you.*
