This text is written at a level more appropriate to an 8th grade class than to a college course. The actual information content is sparse, and often inaccurate, while managing also to be excessively vague, and uninformative. A broad survey of basic sociology is accomplished, but at a much lower level than is appropriate for a college freshman text. Perhaps the authors should have spent more time delivering informational content and less time trying to make a flashy, "fun" book for our increasingly infantilized student body.
