What would Sociology be without its great sociological thinkers who have contributed so much to this mother of social sciences? Successful social thinkers consider the points of view, emotions, thoughts, beliefs, prior knowledge and intentions of others (this is often called perspective-taking-considering the perspectives of others). This is for most of us an intuitive process. We can determine the meanings behind the messages communicated by others and how to respond to them within milliseconds to three seconds! Social thinking occurs everywhere, when we talk, share space, walk down the street, even when we read a novel and relate to our pets. It is an intelligence that integrates information across home, work and community settings-something we usually take for granted! The book endeavors to provide all requirements of students and teachers to enable them to achieve success in social work and related activities. If there prove to be of little value to the readers, all efforts and hardships of the author will amply be rewarded.
