This book is for everyone, from the general reader to the scholar. Macionis capitalizes on all aspects of society as a whole. He reminds you how society can be great and how far from perfect, we really are. This book is not only compelling but is a book that will have you thinking about real world problems and if you are a person who is blessed to be doing well it will make you think about how you can help others who are not. Nevertheless, if you are person who is looking for a book that never slows down this is for you.
This text is solid. It attempts to examine sociological issues concisely. It is not loaded with difficult jargon and students can follow along. The problem with the text is that it does not incorporate enough information about people of color (e.g., blacks, latinos, asians). Nor does it include discussions about disabled persons. I did not use the CD rom.
