A classic. I gave it to my young friend just starting her journey through sociology!

I first read this book sometime in the 1970's. It changed my life by changing how I looked at life. No book better exemplifies Shakespeare's "All the world's a stage."

Erving Goffman's theory in this book stands firm even still today. The "taken-for-grantedness", and the "world as a stage", all fit nicely in today's contemporary analysis of human social dynamics. It is commensurate with Pierre Bourdieu's practice theory, and can be applied to any social and linguistic discourse analysis.

An amazing piece of scholarly work! Iconic! So influential, it underlies the entire field of symbolic interactionism. Inspiring read for those exploring interpersonal and relational elements of human interaction. Explains and frames many of the issues that arise in confrontations.

If you have an interest in sociology or the ways people act and why this is your book. Theories can be applied to most interactions and the straightforward real life examples makes it easy.

Was looking for another book with similar name, but this one is thought provoking.

Although Goffman`s style of writing is very dense it`s definitely a must read for understanding microsociology concepts. The conditions of the book were as described by the seller.
