However, if you read the article, you'll see that the authors of the department-assigned text are the chair and vice-chair of the department. Which is largely unethical in my opinion. (But don't get me started on ethics and the textbook industry...)

Isn't that how all textbook decisions are made? I remember our awful CompSci books were written by the department chairs. I won't have cared that much had we not concluded the department head was senile.

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
