book was assigned by a professor during college, typical read, interesting but not a page turner
Doukasa
This book is barely in English. Made it almost impossible to understand concepts of social contructionism and complete assignments. Do not recommend for any class- ever. Read like a complete philosophy book. "Is it this, or is it that"? "Could it be this"? Aggravating read.
