From the Publisher
"It uses people and cases you can relate to in real life. While some researches present abstract information which is difficult to assimilate, this book gives a vivid life story of issues that are clear and easy to understand and digest. I mostly find myself nodding after reading the "research Hot Topics" and Examining the Evidence" sections." ~E. Sorkpor, Hunter College
