    Pay more money for cultural relevance!

    This book sucks if you're a college student. It's extremely wordy and poorly organized. The reason it's constantly re-released in new editions is not because it's good. It's so they can put in pictures and references to pop culture that are newer and more relevant to newer students. I'm glad the reason the campus bookstore probably won't buy it back is that Lady Gaga isn't referenced in this edition. Chapter outlines are awful and there are almost no straight-forward definitions. It wouldn't be so bad if the glossary was more than 6 pages long. Ya, all the pertinent and defining information in this book fits into 6 pages. The index is only 10 pages so if you ever try to look back on an earlier concept have fun flipping through the whole book. If you're a college student and are used to learning more from the book than the teacher's lectures don't waste your time and money.
