This book is excellent for any lay reader who is interested in philosophy, critical theory, or cultural studies, and wants to see what Bourdieu is all about and why he's so important. It might be more useful to start with the second half first to get a feel for how Bourdieu's models are used, and then go back to the first half to read the more theoretical material. But for someone who has wanted to know what the fuss was about but wasn't sure it was quite worth slogging through 'Outline of a Theory of Practice' or whatever, this is a great place to start.Was this review helpful?
