Recensioner i media

"I love The Forest and the Trees. And, honestly, if there was not a new edition, I am not sure how I would teach my introduction to sociology course. My students often comment that it was the best book in a class they have ever read. I cannot sing the praises of The Forest and the Trees enough!"-Marisol Clark-Ibanez, Associate Professor of Sociology, California State University, San Marcos "There is no better book to help college students understand the sociological mindset."-Terence J. McGinn, The University of Michigan
