[A] scrupulous, sad, exciting book. (New York Times)
We have a remarkable anthropologist to thank for an absorbing account. (New York Review of Books)
Both Nisa and Shostak are unusual people, and their collaboration has resulted in an unparalleled account of !Kung life from a personal rather than social or ecological perspective. Even more important, their work results in a revelation of the universality of women's experiences and feelings despite vast differences in culture and society. Nisa helps us know what it means to be !Kung, to be a woman, and finally, to be human. (Choice)
Nisa is a humbling and inspiring book. (Tim Jeal Wall Street Journal 2012-09-08)
