Needed this from white collar class. This book is so poorly written I don't know where to start. The subject matter layout is disjointed, lots of boxes with data that should just be incorporated into the text. It's very distracting. The writer has a pretentious, overly professorial style that will bore you to tears. Everybody in my class just hated this book. Horrible references so it takes forever to find what you're looking for. I can't wait to re-sell it so I don't have to look at it anymore. :)

This book is a disaster, it uses many big words and long paragraphs to explain simple concepts. It extremely boring, and it is very difficult to extract the little useful information it has. I only read it because I had to for college, and I did so bits by bits.

Very well written, and the format was easy to read - wonderful book. The writings on Sutherland and the multistage approach to defining white collar crime is excellent.

The book itself was in good quality, but I hardly ended up using it in my White Collar Crime class -__- But it got here just in time and was very informative :)

It's okay, but not my favorite for teaching a 300 level college class. Definitely need to supplement without side sources.
