I enjoy Saxon. I especially like the categorization of problems into application fields which are quite diverse and *reality oriented* as well as *abstract oriented*.
Yes, Doc-Doc's "enjoyment" of Saxon really constitutes evidence! He might enjoy a hot poker in the eye and that will be evidence that hot pokers in the eye are good for your health, no doubt.
This statement is ludicrous. Every textbook on the market categorizes problems into "reality oriented" application categories--Saxon inclusion of these is a reaction to the rest of the field and to demands from state boards, not a creative maneuver to outflank everyone else. The fact that few of these "reality oriented" applications have anything to do with reality seems to have escaped Doc-Doc's astute analysis.
