Review:

"What I like about the book is that it gets students to start thinking like social scientists, which is a craft that takes practice to perfect. This book shows what the social science enterprise looks like. It also gives students resources and ideas for further exploration."

"Well written, easily understood, simple approach to explaining complex concepts to students who have never had the material before."
