This book was assigned for a college level physical anthropology class but is written for a fairly uninformed ninth grader in my opinion. It was pretty boring and basic and had a good handful of scientific inaccuracies.
I was assigned the 7th edition for a physical anthropology class at a community college. I didn't LOVE it, and I found some of the claims made to be unsubstantiated, but it was a pretty interesting read. It was way better than the last anthro book I had to read--ugh!! I don't remember what the title of it was but this one was way better.

Okay, so I didn't exactly read this book for fun...initially. It was a book I had to have for a class, but it's a reference book that I go back to a lot. And, it was one book and one class I never complained about having to read or do work for.
