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. :)

I am a junior college student studying the social sciences, specifically Criminology, Psychology and Sociology. I have never had trouble reading any of my other textbooks however, this is a different story. The setup of the pages is hard to understand. The author uses good examples however, he uses far too many and goes in depth way too quickly. I have talked to other students and they have the same issues. Once you are done reading a chapter (usually about 30 pages a chapter), you do not even know what you just read.

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 :)

Although there are not that many White Collar Crimes out there to compare it with. But surely discussed all the issues, it helped me alot.

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