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

You May Ask Yourself gives instructors an alternative to the typical textbook by emphasizing the “big ideas” of the discipline, and encouraging students to ask meaningful questions. Conley employs a “non-textbook” strategy of explaining complex concepts through personal examples and storytelling, and integrates coverage of social inequality throughout the text.

Review:

“For once, I was actually excited about reading a textbook. It seemed as if the author was talking directly to me at times.”
- LaToya, social work major, SUNY Brockport

“It was like reading magazines with images of my favorite actors and politicians. I loved looking at the book and reading it.”
- Abigail, nursing major, Queensborough Community College

“Honestly, I loved this book. It was so much more interesting that the other assigned readings, and reading You May Ask Yourself was the only assignment I always had done.”
- Melissa, sociology major, University of Pennsylvania
