    Read this for a class Some of the material is admittedly interesting, but there s just too much fluff Definitely can do without 40% of the pages I think in the beginning of the book it tells you about searching through journals online and stuff that just is not necessary, not to mention that most readers are likely going to betech savvy than the author himself Some people in the class complained that some things were too rigorous in the book or something, but I disagree They say it Read this for a class Some of the material is admittedly interesting, but there s just too much fluff Definitely can do without 40% of the pages I think in the beginning of the book it tells you about searching through journals online and stuff that just is not necessary, not to mention that most readers are likely going to betech savvy than the author himself Some people in the class complained that some things were too rigorous in the book or something, but I disagree They say it s obvious or something, and shouldn t have to be tested well then why are you still getting a shit grade then Anyway, every science has to be pedantic and rigorous for it to be taken seriously If you came into sociology thinking it d be a walk in the park compared to a harder science like physics, think again each domain has its own specific challenges that are, in fact, genuinely challenging I might even say that the book doesn t reach that level, though it does have a lot of fluff.That said, it s not dense It s very readable even by textbook standards I d give it 2.5 for that, which would make me round to 3, but the statistician in me relevant to sociology tells me I should round to even So, 2 5.It also has a lot of example research, so there s that

    The first few chapters of this book were pretty promising and did a good job at engaging me, but by the end he s telling you how to use WinZip Seriously dude There sfiller material like that towards the end, information that s basically completely worthless I would give the first couple to first several chapters 4 stars, and then the later ones like 1 or 0 I read the book cover to cover well, except for the table of contents and the index and it seemed to get progressively worse He The first few chapters of this book were pretty promising and did a good job at engaging me, but by the end he s telling you how to use WinZip Seriously dude There sfiller material like that towards the end, information that s basically completely worthless I would give the first couple to first several chapters 4 stars, and then the later ones like 1 or 0 I read the book cover to cover well, except for the table of contents and the index and it seemed to get progressively worse He just tries to cover so much information Sometimes he goes into way too much detail and sometimes there is not even close to enough specific information to be useful for actually learning about the concepts or how research is really conducted Adding to my ire is the fact that the most I ll be able to sell it back for is like 5

    This book is as good as any for an introduction to sociological methods at the graduate level The text is not too simple, and the concepts are well presented Overall a good entry into the methodologies of the field.
