This is my textbook for Sociology of Family. It is a great textbook because it is easy to read, has glossary terms in bold, defines them on the side, has headings, and it gives you summaries after each section to refresh your memory instead of at the end of each chapter.

Nothing too out of the ordinary. Price was well worth it and I felt that it was a good buy. Shipped in time and there were no problems to speak of. Definitely a good buy and would recommend buying from this seller.
