  1. If you are considering assigning this textbook for an intro to sociology course, I would encourage you to look elsewhere. I am a sociology instructor at a local college. I assigned this book for several semesters and was ultimately not a huge fan. It is clearly written, but has too many definitions and not enough contextual background to help students understand how sociological concepts and ways of understanding the world might be useful to them or helpful in understanding their personal and social worlds. Henslin has a way of writing which both gives sociology an artificial coherence and which presents debates...

  2. I bought this book slightly used for like $50, thinking I got a good deal I bought this book slightly used for like $50, thinking I got a good deal.This entire textbook is online for free though. If you want a cheaper option just use the online book.If you want a physical copy buy the used one.

  3. This is the first negative review I've ever given. ... This is the first negative review I've ever given. Unfortunately, as others have said this book is rather opinionated. However, the most egregious issue I have with this book was the authors "so called" research sources. In one particular chapter he cites a well known tabloid magazine (dailymail) as proof of one of his statements. What sort of scientist/professional does that!? Since you'll probably have to buy this book for a class regardless, feel free to fact check my claim.
