Review of: Choices and Chances: Sociology for Everyday Life
Choices and Chances is part supplemental introductory sociology textbook and part self-help program. The authors examine various life events such as education, marriage, parenthood, and place of residence, and offer social structural reasons for why we want what we do-and why we end up with what we have-in regard to these events. At the same time, they encourage us to examine more carefully the gap between what we want and what we get in our own lives.
