Thinking Like a Sociologist!!!  June 26, 2011
by


You May Ask Yourself emphasizes the big ideas of the discipline, and encourages students to question what they've taken for granted most of their lives. The author gives real examples that help to understand the subject and make you realize things around you that you have never pay attention to. I would definitely recommend this textbook to students to learn something about sociology.






You May Ask Yourself : An Introduction to Thinking Like a Sociologist: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

The “untextbook” that teaches students to think like a sociologist.

You May Ask Yourself emphasizes the “big ideas” of the discipline, and encourages students to question what they've taken for granted most of their lives. Author Dalton Conley captures students with his conversational style, explaining complex concepts through personal examples and storytelling, and integrating coverage of social inequality throughout the textbook. His irreverent approach to textbook writing has won praise from students and instructors alike.

‘’Conley's text has filled an important niche for the community college needs. It is affordable, readable, colorful, and yet has fewer pages to read, which is an important consideration for my beginning-level community college students, and has examples that my young students can relate to.’’ -Sharon Warner Methvin, Mt. Hood Community College

‘’Hip, splashy, youthful, concise, emotive, provocative, unpretentious, sharp, with a fresh take on the issues.’’ -Jennifer Schultz, The University of Arizona

‘’You May Ask Yourself represents a departure from the typical cookie-cutter approach that characterizes most introductory texts. The best sociology textbooks read like storybooks, and students are actually interested in doing the readings. This book has the potential for approaching that standard.’’ -Ralph Pyle, Michigan State University
