This textbook is incredibly biased. Thought most social work books are left leaning, this one is to the point where it won't even give the other side the benefit of the doubt. I also am constantly finding grammar and spelling mistakes. Ridiculous.

This textbook is poorly edited and highly redundant. It could easily convey the same information in less than half the size.

I am in Social Work school and we are using this book for a policy class. I have actually been reading it, which I cannot say for all of my assigned readings. (shhh, don't tell)

I am particulary enjoying the mix of history and current policy. My husband is even interested in reading it when I am done. I recommend this book if you are also (like me) having trouble with different ideologies in your family. It is amazing how much more you will understand about why people think the way they do and the logic you will garner once you understand the history.

This was a reasonable required textbook for my college course, but it is also worthy of keeping on my shelf for future references; both for me and my Jr high/high school students. Contains plenty of useful beginners information.

I was assigned this text for a graduate school class and was disappointed. It is designed and reads like a middle/high school textbook and provides about that much basis for discussion. In the hands of a better professor, perhaps, it could be salvaged, but my experience with this book was a total letdown.

I understand that social policy may not be an easy subject to write about, but this is nuts. This book is full of complicated, convoluted, overly wordy explanations - even the easy ones.

Sorry if you have to get this for a class, but expect to spend a lot of time saying "HUH?!" and then realizing you have learned just a tad bit of info from a whole lotta words.
