I read this textbook for a Medical Anthropology class, and while it's full of interesting information it is a bit dry. The presentation of the facts can be puzzling or awkward at times and there are many missing or incorrect words (which really disrupts the flow of reading). It also suffers from a lack of coherence in that there are lots of stories and explanations but there's no real tying together of the disparate facts within chapters.

Sometimes I would read through something and either wonder
