I loved the cover! I thought this was a very entertaining and easy understand book.

Pretty good read for an Introduction. However, some chapters are very vague and dull, therefore making it a hard book to get into. Overall, I rate this book a three.

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.
