Please enable the text to speech feature. There are several people that have learning disabilities or are visually impaired that could greatly benefit from being able to listen to this textbook! In addition, college students could listen to their chapters while they are commuting, exercising, etc. Please consider this! I commute 8 hours to school per week and really need this feature. Thank you

Book not worth a dime. The professor must have an interest in it. We used it once for one assignment, and many students did not buy it at all.

Not that most have a choice in this book, but I read as little of it as possible. The level of bias in this book was ridiculous. Academics should give facts to allow a student to make an opinion not teach with opinion to sway opinion. This book should be removed from classrooms!

This book has a lot of information and was a great reference during my Practice 3 class for Social Work seeing that the class focused on Macro practice. Didn't need the book for long though.

New to the field, some material hard to follow. The repetition was helpful and each chapter built on one another. Great reference book.
