Editorial Reviews

Review

“What distinguishes the text is up to date and comprehensive coverage. It really covers all the points you wish to address in an undergraduate medical sociology class.”

-William Haas, University of North Carolina at Asheville

 

“Comprehensive coverage of all necessary topics.”

-Dr. Robert D. Ruth, Davidson College

 

“The book is written in a clear, didactic style which is appropriate to a textbook. I find the writing to be exceptionally clear and straightforward. There is no excessive jargon or overly complex sentence structures. In my view, it is one of the most readable texts I’ve used in any of my courses.”

-Eldon Wegner, University of Hawaii at Manoa

 

“The charts and diagrams are a significant addition to demonstrating what is going on in the text.”

-William Haas, University of North Carolina at Asheville

 

“The book is effective in demonstrating the richness of the field of medical sociology in addressing important social and organizational issues in health care.”

-Eldon Wegner, University of Hawaii at Manoa

 

“The textbook is impressive with its solid theoretical grounding in sociological theory generally and medical sociology in particular. This is a high quality accomplishment.”

-Diane Shinberg, University of Memphis

 

 “The chapters are very well-organized, typically beginning with the basic descriptions of the issues and of fundamental concepts before moving to more detailed descriptions.”

-Eldon Wegner, University of Hawaii at Manoa

 

“The authors succeed in providing a broad overview of seminal and current sociological research within medical sociology.”

-Diane Shinberg, University of Memphis

I like that the Kindle edition was $40 cheaper than the actual text at the time I bought it. I did not use it for class much, but what I did read from it was quite interesting. I would love to read more of it when I have the free time and the motivation to read.

Well organized,just like the original book. Easy to locate topics. I bought other books on here and its difficult to locate the topics and pages. Getting this book had made me realize how important it is to have an ebook that's easy to refer to.

I used this book in my Medical Sociology class last semester. I gained a lot of insight on different topics. This book more or less skims the surface of many different topics in Medical Sociology. Lots of helpful charts and side stories. The book, from what I could tell, didn't have any online resources for the student.

Not recommended as best course book. I was very disappointed in the selection from the instructor. Let's hope that another book is selected going forward.

used for school, purchased at a discount rate here on amazon so it was certainly worth the money and it served it's purpose.
