"Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through graduate students; general readers. (Choice, 1 August 2012)
"All in all, this is a valuable text not just because of the marriage of the academic with the everyday, but because of the diverse issues that it touches on. It's a well-rounded effort and even the most jaded fashion person will find something new between its covers." (The Licentiate, 26 September 2011)
