Format: Hardcover
Outstanding and very thorough look at deviant behavior from the sociological perspective. Difficult to cover entire book in one semester, as it is very long. All text; no pictures, so book is not necessarily appealing to the eye.

Theoretical perspectives covered in detail. This book may work better as a graduate text. I would love to see a better study guide to accompany the book.

I got this for school but found this to be very interesting to read. I found this to be very informative and gave me a lot more info on deviant human behavior. I am able to see it in people and deal with it in my personal life as well.

The size of this book makes it feel less like a book for college. It's a good book.
