I am considering adopting this OpenStax textbook for Fall 2017 rather than the OER Boundless Microbiology textbook, mainly because of the option to download this text as a PDF, which Boundless does not offer, and also because of its affiliation with Rice University rather than a commercial company. Is there anyone else who prefers the Boundless text over this one and can you give me reasons why?
