Difficult but not too difficult to read.
on November 4, 2014
The chapters are a pain to read, the book reminds me of my US history textbook. I'm reading this for my intro to sociology class, and it just covers a number of broad topics. Each one is at least 30 pages long, with the small font divided into two columns on each page. Luckily there's always at least one graphic no matter where in your book you leave it open. Sometimes there are stories that aren't very relevant to the material that take up an entire page which is awesome because I can skip it and be more motivated to finish the dang reading. Not so focused on vocabulary, but on main ideas and concepts. The same theories are mentioned repeatedly in every chapter so the information stays fresh in mind, so tests and quizzes aren't so bad (at least mine aren't). Some of the chapters are very interesting and catch your attention, others can be boring. Depends on what interests you.
