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.
