Format: Paperback
I'm reading this book currently for an Intro to Sociology college class. It scarcely covers topics, but expects you to answer complex review questions. With very few examples to open up my range of thinking on each topic & subtopic, my own thinking is severely limited within the contexts of this book. I wouldn't recommend it, & if you DO have to get it, get a used copy. The white cover gets dirty extremely easy & pages are just as easily damaged by simply flipping back & forth through them.

Very good college book that makes you look at life in a different prospective. It makes you look at issues from a Sociologist point of view.
