5.0 out of 5 stars Introduces the reader to anthroplogy, September 9, 2002
If someone is thinking about what anthroplogy is, or may want to study it, or are interested in the evolution of humans and culture, this book is a great introduction for the novice.
Marivn Harris takes the reader though step by step with good descriptions of the how, and possible whys. He also takes time in the end of the short chapters to explain some opposing ideas, and then gives his reasons for why he doesn't think that's right.
The book is of good lenght to have good explaination of the topics he takes at hand with "Our Kind." The book is in no means all inclusive, but for a beginer this book is great.
"Our Kind" will get the reader interested in anthroplogy and evolution, and will make the reader want to read more publications.

1.0 out of 5 stars There's too much and not enough to this book..., September 9, 2002
For anyone that is thinking about reading this book, because you are going to follow in the coat-tails of so many that have already, I say to you, if you do not want jargan and enough figures to make your head ache, then don't bother.
While the book does repersent an O.K. study of the "fast food" industry, this book is probally not what the average reader thinks it is. It is filled with senseless numbers, statements, and terms that will make the average reader lose interest or pretend that they understand everything.
This book is one of which many people won't finish, or will stuggle though to have that accomplishment. I say this, because this book is not leasure reading, and is even heavy with figures and data for a unprofessional journal.
Whoever is out there looking for a book to read about the fast-food industry, and all the sick attributes that go along with it, look for another book or go work for one.
