I am sure I did not read this cover to cover.

However. . . .I have recently come across a list I made in 1976 of the top 10 books I liked.

At first, I was excited. Number one book was called "Concoctions" about stuff you make at home for fun. So far, so good.

Number two book was The Story of Man and it would have been this one in our basement. Anthropology really interested me back then and I remember this book of my dad's.

So - number three book? Um. Tiger Beat. Followed by Teen Beat. Followed by S

As far as modern, scientific anthropological formulations go, this one is well done. There is much it does not explain, but the facts collected here are useful for getting the recorded history of humanity from the perspective of modern anthropology. It also has the advantage of being free of certain 'politically correct' obsessions that are now common.
