This is a very interesting book. As a coach, I think constantly about corporate culture, so a reminder of how culture is based in anthropological study is definitely worth a read. There are some fascinating stories/research in this book that one can think through business related scenarios.

Appreciate the diverse essay collection and was quite intrigued with the findings of several of the studies. Not a super long read, but the content provided several points of worthwhile consideration and has broadened my interest in cultural anthropology.

This was mandatory for my son's college anthropology class and it is an excellent textbook. Since I am not the one reading it I only have his opinion to go on.

The last dang class I had to take in college. However, I couldn't put the books down. Found the subject very interesting.
