This book, which is used as a textbook for courses in about 200 colleges and universities each year, is one of the first titles in the Pearson line-up to be converted to an all-digital format.

The folks at Pearson, and their subcontractors, have been working on this new edition, which they call REVEL after the software system they are using, since last September.

Exactly how all of this will work out for the book we don’t know. But the change is huge — mind-boggling for me, frankly.
