    1. Before commenting, I must make the following conditional statement It is possible to judge this book in any number of ways, but for me the two most relevant are first, in terms of the academic field of science and technology studies STS and second, in terms of its value as a survey of an academic field In terms of the first, I am broadly persuaded by the value of STS and the social constructivist viewpoint in understanding science This is a controversial position, for while many working scientis [...]

    2. A really clear overview of every part of Science and Technology Studies STS This book is what it claims to be a clear introduction This means that even with no knowledge of STS, this book is quite an easy read, but really informative too So, definitely recommended for the interested beginner.

    3. Excellent introductory text which covers a wide interdisciplinary breadth while remaining quite accessible Sergio Sismondo brilliantly displays why STS is such an important, exciting, and controversial field of study.

    4. An excellent introduction to the field of STS, which deals with the intersection of science and the humanities For anyone interested in exploring a constructivist view of science influenced by sociology, philosophy, and other disciplines in the humanities, this is a great place to begin.

    5. I read the 2nd edition of this book It was very informative and I use it to reference refresh myself on concepts of STS Great book
