Great concise overview of social constructionist philosophy (practice?). Recommended for anyone feeling like they're boxed in. Actually, it pretty much defines "out-of-the-box thinking". I found myself repulsed from it, yet simultaneously drawn to it. Has the potential to transform the way you look at the world.

I absolutely hated this book. I had to read it for a MPA course and it was horrible. Extremely boring and everything after the first chapter is a repeat. I felt like I was reading a horrible verison of the matrix movie. While reading this book just remember... there is no spoon.
