Great text for sport sociology. The pages are vibrantly colored and the content is fairly interesting and organized too. The book integrates many life situations and stories. For the most part, the chapters are short and manageable. Came in good condition.

I am going for my masters in sports administration. This book shows the importance sports and the social aspects of it. If a sports program is to be run well, all aspects in a social context must be brought out.

The material covered in the text is great but the ebook itself is horrible. You literally have to turn the pages one by one if you want to get to a specific point and it constantly force closes when I use it. I recommend getting the hard copy to save yourself the hassle of nonstop technical difficulties.

I signed up for school and needed the book right away. Plus, other sites were way too expensive. Amazon will help me pass my class.
