Customer Reviews

I actually really enjoyed reading this textbook

 on August 8, 2017
By Megan
I actually really enjoyed reading this textbook, I read the entire thing front to back. There are some minor spelling and grammatical errors, but it is otherwise an enjoyable read for a textbook. It does need to be updated in some areas, specifically the LGBT movement…but as this movement is constantly changing (especially currently), this certainly can be a difficult with rapidly growing information.

Bought for class

Bought this book for use with school but very glad I did! Covers a wide number of topics that everyone can relate to at any point in their life. Fun to look through for personal satisfaction. Great for help with learning school requirements. Very easy to read, has a nice picture/chart/graph/text ratio. If I hadn’t had the course but found this book on my own I’d still have purchased.
