5.0 out of 5 stars A great introductory text, 3 Sept. 2012

This review is from: Social Work: The Basics (Kindle Edition)
Having qualified as a social worker in 1988 and been a lecturer in social work since 2008 I would say in my opinion this is one of the best introductory texts I've read. If you like 'academic' books you might find this a bit too informal, but if you like honest, down-to-earth, warm and humorous guides to what being a social work is about in reality then you will probably love this book.

I'm not sure you can read a kindle book 'cover to cover', but that is what I did, and thoroughly enjoyed it. As a pre-course reader or a first year text, this is probably one of the best I've ever read.

This review is from: Social Work: The Basics (Kindle Edition)
I have a few social work books and this is the best one I have read so fr. It is in well manageable chunks and makes sense, no jargon like in some professional books.
