"This unique work presents practical, in-depth advice for students in the field in an engaging and accessible way. Numerous questions, specific examples, and exercises throughout are designed to give readers an in-depth understanding of the material. McCarthy summarizes the core concepts of OT to make this an ideal guide for both advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and one that will, by example, lead the way to future developments in the field."--Jacket." ;
