    I thought the book had an excellent mix of student voices and professional experiences. With the purpose of the book being a reflection of student's intergroup experiences on campus, letting real entries from students drive the book made it very real and powerful. It also made the stories they told more accessible, as I had stronger reactions to some of them (like the awkward exchange between the convenience store clerk and customer) than I think I would have had without the context of college students sharing their experiences. The commentary that tied all the stories together and showed the social theories that they reflected gave the book credibility and made the lessons easily applicable to the reader. That is, the real and vivid stories quickly give the reader an image, and the zooming out broadened that image without losing the power behind it. There were a couple times in the book where the student stories went on a little long (in most cases I had this feeling when there were... More > back-to-back long student entries with little to no commentary). I don't feel like they needed to be reduced, but perhaps interjected with more commentary to help the book flow through those moments. Overall, this book was unlike any book I have ever read, and I really enjoyed it.< Less

    "Howl of the Wolf" is a thoughtful and incredibly personal analysis of the Neodiversity facing society. Crafted using excerpts from Dr. Nacoste's students and his own experiences this book feels more like a close friend giving advice rather than a Professor attempting to provide you with tools to navigate today's uncertain social situations and mixed group interactions. Once finished "Howl" will become a staple in your library and in your daily life. Hopefully you too will pick up this book and hear the howl!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dr. Nacoste’s newest book, “Howl of the Wolf”. It transported me back to his class and reminded me how much I loved and appreciated his teaching style and his message. “Howl of the Wolf” is a must-read for any college student, as it offers astute insight into interpersonal relationships. It is a collection of well-selected stories from students and explanations and thought-provoking writing on the part of Dr. Nacoste. The book deals with delicate subjects in a candid and captivating manner, and it encourages the reader to question their actions and beliefs in a positive way. I have recommended this book to all of my friends, and I would suggest it be the common reading for our university and others. Bristol Bowman, NCSU Junior

    I definitely enjoyed “Howl of the Wolf.” Neo-diversity is something that needs to be addressed on a level outside of the classroom. It's something that is happening everywhere and every day and we can't escape it. My favorite chapter of the book was chapter 2, "No Innocent". I think it was my favorite chapter because it is the absolute truth. There really are no innocent. We says things every day and don't even realize that we are saying them. In fact, I still find myself guilty of saying things and not realizing I have said them and I took your course. I know better, but I'm still human. I make mistakes and that in return makes me just as guilty as the next person, even if I did not mean it in any negative context. That's what I got out of the chapter and I think that's something everyone would get out of that chapter. The chapter gave me a reality check to be more mindful than I already am in class, at work, in my personal relationships, just everywhere. “Howl of the Wolf”... More > is definitely a book that I want to keep on my shelf and let friends and family borrow, so that they can have to opportunity to learn like I have. Sandhya H Advani, NCSU Alumnus (2012)< Less

    “Howl of the Wolf” brought me right back to Dr. Nacoste’s class. With excerpts from student papers, this book demonstrates why there is a need for change. Neo-diversity is all around us and is unavoidable. We are social creatures at heart, and because of this we come into contact everyday with people that are different than ourselves. This book really opens the eyes of the reader to what is going on in our society today. For this reason, everyone should be exposed to “Howl of the Wolf.”
