Very surprised by how much I ended up enjoying an anthropology textbook. There's some wonky writing and a couple of "um, what?!" claims, but I liked the subject and overall approach.
This was one of the few text books I actually enjoyed reading. It's planned well and the material is presented in an easy-to-read and easy-to-comprehend way.
Very interesting book. Very informative. I enjoyed reason it even though it was a textbook. Definitely recommend for reading plus it's an easy read
