Dalton Conley takes on a different approach to introducing the fundamental ideas and concepts of the discipline of sociology in his ground-breaking book, You May Ask Yourself: An Introduction to Think Like a Sociologist (ISBN 9780393935172). This highly engaging material presents complex concepts – including social, gender, and racial inequality – in a way that is easy to read and digest, making it very popular with college students and instructors looking for an alternative to rigidly academic resources. Conley uses a conversational tone, giving readers a fresh outlook on social issues and concepts by telling stories and citing examples from his personal experience. You May Ask Yourself: An Introduction to Think Like a Sociologist is suitable for familiarizing new students to sociology as it does not overwhelm or bombard with intimidating jargon, but instead uses a friendly approach to key ideas. From the comic-like book cover to the colorful illustrations, this ‘non-textbook' is an excellent reference even for professionals. The author Dalton Conley has written for newspapers and has produced other top-selling books. He is the sociology department chair of New York University and a winner of the National Science Foundation's Alan T. Waterman Award (the first sociologist to win this honor). Aside from exploring sociology concepts, Conley offers insightful questions that can help readers think about their lives and question what they know and what they take for granted. This book is highly recommended for freshmen and anyone who is interested in the study of society. It is packed with recent researches and is both provocative and concise, covering all the basics of sociology and encouraging students to think critically and with scientific curiosity.
