This book was required for an intro to sociology class that I took and although this book is 'introductory', I felt that it could have provided more examples, sources, and evidence to the concepts it was attempting to convey. Another issue I had with the book was that the graphs that it included were ofter hard to decipher and were included with little or no explanation. Bottom line: Although the book does offer some interesting and useful information, it lacks helpful examples and explanations, so if possible choose a different intro to sociology textbook.

I purchased this book from Bunches of Books for only 27 cents + shipping. I'd have say that the book has been "well loved" lets just say, but for the price, I can't complain.

The book was a bit worn but all in all it was in nice shape. The experiences was great and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I ordered 4 books at the time I purchased this one, and I received this book first and it is in great condition with very minimal highlights. This was my first time ordering books offline and after my experience I will definitely do it again in the future.
