Henslin's best-selling brief paperback text shares the excitement of sociology with the acclaimed "down-to-earth" approach and personal writing style, which highlights the sociology of everyday life.

This text is a brief version of the highly successful hardcover introductory text, Sociology: A Down-to-Earth Approach, 5/e. The essential 15 chapters cover all of the topics in the 22-chapter text, and retain the dual emphases on micro and macro (individual and structural) sociology. The author has a unique ability to engage students without talking down to them. With wit, personal reflection, and illuminating examples, Henslin is able to share his passion for sociology with his readers like no other author of an introductory text.
