Pros: This textbook is designed primarily for education majors and so this book is less terse and easily understandable compared to some other general mathematics textbooks. It contains basic information about a variety of mathematical topics, making it ideal for a person who wishes to be well-rounded in general mathematics. Plenty of practice problems provide sufficient exercises for the mathematical mind. Every other page or so, the authors provide a biographical sketch of a famous mathematician or an interesting note about notation or history.

Cons: Because it is designed primarily for education majors, it lacks the depth that other mathematical textbooks have.

Overall: I would highly recommend this book for anybody interested in learning the basics of mathematics.
