I learned alot, however, you would think that a feminist wrote this book rather than a man and even I found that offensive as a woman.
Fine textbook. A good read for introductory sociology course
had to read the book for a course in school. Very interesting topic and easy to follow. It got me interested in sociology might continue reading about the topic.
Behavior in people is always an interesting topic. Love this class!
