that this was actually a good book. My professor made us purchase this for a foklore class. He told us that it was not all that exciting, but I beg to differ. I found this to be an excellent leisure reading book as well as an excellent textbook for class. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in folklore.

Required by a folklore class, this was a fairly entertaining read, making the class as a whole much more lively, but as a basic read, it won't be needed by anyone save a folklore student.

Had to order this book for my Folklore & Folklife class I am taking. Gives a very good overview on "folklore", and is definitely an easy read for everyone. It is a textbook, so it's not the most interesting thing in the world but is still very helpful.
