Recommended reading for those undergraduate students that are studying science as a specialism option. The 'Application and Self-Reflection' sections throughout the book are extremely useful in relating theory and practice.

I just finished the book and I wanted to ask if there is a plan to release another edition without the typos. The book is thoughtful and needed in our field. I am considering using this.
