Book is split into small chapters with maps and photos. Very clear and to the point on each culture, pointing out the unique characteristics of each. Includes very interesting facts, especially about certain groups. Informative and educational while being easy to read, so I gave it 5 stars.

I had to use this book for my required college intro to anthropology class. This book was great, as it was quite well-organized. Each chapter described a group of people, with a map that shows where they originate. The sections in the book divide the different aspects of the peoples, such as origin stories, social structure, and how they obtain sustenance. Within these sections are unique subsections that describe anything special or unique for the culture. (Bonus: The subsections are fairly small and digestible.)

While I did get bored at times with the book, not being all that interested in people studies, this was a easy-to-read book that helped me understand other cultures.

Had to use this book for a college course. Not bad to read considering I wasn't extremely interested in the subject matter but it was bearable. Got an "A" in the course and the cost of this book was very affordable. Thanks again Amazon!

Interesting, factual and to the point. Gives an overview of different cultures from beliefs of creation to rituals and traditions. Easy reading and concise. I learned alot without having to read overly worded chapters.

Had to buy this book for class, hated it. Hated the class. Worst ever. Teacher didn't help; wanted to write horrible stuff about him, but refrained. But I'm more of a phys. anthropology person so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
