Overview

The most relevant textbook for today’s students.The Real World succeeds in classrooms because it focuses on the perspective that students care about most—their own. In every chapter, authors Kerry Ferris and Jill Stein use examples from everyday life and popular culture to draw students into thinking sociologically and to show the relevance of sociology to our relationships, our jobs, and our future goals. New to the Fifth Edition, two Data Workshops in every chapter give students a chance to apply theoretical concepts to their personal lives and actually do sociology.

Ferris makes this introduction to sociology extremely easy to read and very relevant. Terms and concepts are very clear and concise while the stories associated are from today. It also has a very nice and well rounded view of gender and gender issues. I definetly have learned a lot with the help of this book. Anything that wasn't clear to me in class, was made clear through this book.
