Here's a syllabus for a course using TICB--lots of interesting material here.
The instructor, Michael Hecht, writes: "I've been teaching from this book since its first edition and have always found it draws the students interest. I try to expose students to research and have them apply their new knowledge to practice in their personal and professional lives. The book is a perfect complement for that approach." In fairness I should add that Michael was a student of mine at Queens College so is probably biased.
