"Most independently published books have a very short and localized lifespan. 'Becoming a Learner' has been very different. It needed to be published indepentdently because the manuscript had demand before it could go through a traditional publishing process. Then it quickly gained traction among students and teachers. Now in just a few years, its use in programs and classrooms has spread quickly. Orientation, first-year experience, and academic programs in large public universities, community colleges, land-grant universities, and private liberal arts colleges have used this book to help students better understand and take advantage of their college experience. With this success, it was time to create an improved second edition with a traditional publisher." - from 'Preface to Second Edition'
