Critical Acclaim
‘This retiree cheers as Thomas, Chappell, and Bright carry the CAO professional instrument significantly forward. This attractive idea can become daunting and dangerous. Their book lays out a complete history, gives superb instructions for implementation, discusses CAOphilosophy, and clearly marks risks – never forgetting CAO’s teaching power and fun.'
– Roger Putzel, St. Michael's College, US
