As Newman intended, the book has a relaxed tone and all of the chapters are tied together with a consistent theme. I now understand sociological theories and ideas-phenomena that I never thought were relevant to everyday life.

Sociology, Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life: Readings underscores the "architecture" of social life-how we, as social beings, are always building and rebuilding our social environment. This anthology includes a range of styles and examples that reflect common experiences and phenomena; important social issues and problems; the relationship between the individual and society; and a sociological perspective on specific historic events.

The Sixth Edition of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, Readings continues to provide students with vivid, provocative, and eye-opening examples of the practice of sociology. The readings represent a variety of viewpoints and include articles written by psychologists, anthropologists, social commentators, and journalists, in addition to sociologists. Many of the readings are drawn from carefully conducted social research, while others are personal narratives that put human faces on matters of sociological relevance.

The first comment I need to make about why this is a one star review, is that it is an infantalizing text. I know the target audience is 18 year-olds taking Sociology 101 for the first time (something I definitely am not), and so needs to be easily understood; however this book is written for people who apparently have no life experience. If you are a 10 year-old with a high school reading aptitude this book is for you (except see below).

The next issue relates to who I am and why I read this book. I am by education and profession a physicist, I possess a doctorate in physics and for balance another in history. I have spent most of the last two decades using my free time to find and read social science papers which served as the basis of news stories that seemed off to me. What I consistently found was that the research in these papers was atrocious. They always posses clear and obvious methodological errors, lack of proper variable control, small and/or unrepresentative sample sizes (the W.E.I.R.D, problem as well as an over reliance on undergraduates as subjects), circular reasoning, desired conclusions being assumed as priors, lack of reproducibility and/or falsifiablity, and propagandist agenda pushing (keep in mind I often agree with the agenda, but it's still bad science). As a result I've become fairly hostile to the social sciences, believing they are a refuge for people with an axe to grind, but no interest in the truth. Recently I decided to test that hypothesis, by reading introductory text books in each of the social science fields, to see if the problems exist there as well. I have been surprised by most of the books I've read, in which the topic is treated lucidly and scientifically and the very problems I am concerned about are addressed, and I have been reconsidering my position on the lack of scientific rigor in the social sciences. This book has been the sole exception, it posses every failing I find in those offending social science papers, and seems to revel in flaunting them. This may be a product of this particular author, or a flaw in the field of Sociology itself, I intend at a future date to try and find another Sociology text and read it for comparison. In any event this book should be avoided.
