    Story
    "Great book - hard to find in download"
    What did you love best about Sociology?

    Mina Sands is wonderful in how she reads the writers work


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - it has 20+ chapters; however you can listen to one chapter in one setting or while traveling to and from work.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that the chapter number was first, it took me seventeen downloads to find chapter one as they are not marked.

    "Nice!"

    Very nice and organized introduction to sociology. If you are a sociology newbie, "googling" some information while listening to this chapter helps a lot.

    Story
    "Fascinating and filled with insights"
    Would you listen to Ch 1: The Sociological Perspective again? Why?

    Yes, I will listen to this again. The concepts are very interesting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    SInce it's non-fiction, there are not really characters.


    What about Mina Sands’s performance did you like?

    Clarity of voice and clear reading, but a little monotone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, just very thought provoking.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like to examine sociology and how the world and culture work, it's really interesting.

    "Max Weber"

    It's fine, but the reader says Max Weber like Webber. Its pretty annoying that she gets such an important persons name wrong.
