    1. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/DK is known for their beautifully laid out, highly graphic, yet extremely informative texts for all ages. With The Sociology Book, we have a book in an award-winning series (including religions, economics, politics, business, psychology, etc.) that makes a complex and difficult subject not only accessible but easy to understand. The book doesn't pander, lightly touch upon, or gloss over the subject; rather, the subject is broken down [...]

    2. Are you interested in a thrilling book with plot twists around every corner? If so, this is not the book for you. The Sociology Book is more like a textbook with units and chapters.

    4. Marx, Marx, Marx I get it, he is one of the forefathers of sociology. Enough, I got sick of reading about him every other page. His ideas are terrible and ruined every society they poisoned, you seem to have missed to mention this. Other than that, the book is ok, it gives a basic overview of sociology and its leading theories. Mind you, they aren't particularly good, consistent or convincing. I expected more, but nevertheless the book has a good design. May be its sociology itself that leaves a [...]

    5. A perfect introduction to the subject. The Sociology Book covers a lot of ground explaining several key concepts like inequality, gender and consumerism through the lens of sociologists throughout history. Starting with a main idea such as "glocalization", by Roland Robertson, and placing it in its appropriate context, the idea is further explained by looking at what impact it has for society (impact on nation-state, ) and its individuals (how does someone's self-image change by it?).For me, it [...]

    6. Breakdown of Social ControlConspiracies of social control are prevalent on the internet with little peer reviewed sources. This Sociology Book breaks down various theories into a scientific explanation as to why societies behave the way they do. Underneath the propagated surface of American Consumerism lies a dirty underbelly of oppressed minority and even to include the vast majority in various degrees. By recognizing these issues the educated population can come to make informed decisions on s [...]

    8. Like so many DK books, this is not really a book you read from front to back, but it is such an enjoyable and important read. Many books like this, I like to have around, but this one I feel like I should have it around because it has such compelling descriptions and explanations of so many of our cultural practices. Loved it.

    9. Exactly as promised, Sociology simply explained. So simple that I understood the astounding concepts which have alluded me for years. I love this book and this series of books and look forward to reading them all.

    10. Whilst I haven't read all of it, I find this book very useful for giving very clear and simplified descriptions of key theories.

    11. Definitely a must have resource book for a sociologist. Or, like me, a sociology minor.

    12. This book immensely helped me understand key concepts in Sociological theory which were more difficult to grasp in social theory textbooks in University. This was a great tool.
