Very informative even though it has an athiest connotation. I don't understand why scientists would hold to the philosophy of evolution when they keep using the word "discover"; it's an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms. Someone had to put everything here to be "discovered", and I believe God did just that.

My first choice is to buy my text books used. Who wants to pay full price for book that you used intensely for one semester (or quarter) and then put on a shelf to collect dust? I love to highlight, underline, and generally beat the crap out of my texts, so selling them back to a bookstore after the term is over isn't an option for me. Maybe one day I'll get a wild hair and go through my old texts for the fun of it--this will never happen, but I have used old texts a reference material for papers. The point is, If you have to buy new books, buy them cheap. This was a good deal.

A pretty good book on a decent subject. I really enjoyed the fact that the author takes great strides to include information which relates to how the popular attitudes concerning tricky subjects such as religion, creationism, etc. can be solved by understanding physical anthropology.

Overall it's not bad, although it is sort of the picturebook version of physical anthropology. Lots of pages covering DNA replication, but nothing about species formation. Words like "speciation" don't even appear in the index. The book uses the words "gracile" and "robust" in the chapter on australopithecines, but does very little to explain the difference. The word "gracile" doesn't appear in the glossary or index.

It's not unusable, but it's not great.

I think this is shaping up to be a very interesting book indeed. I wanted an easy class while doing my student teaching to keep full time status, and a freshmen anthro seemed interesting, so here I am. The content is very entrancing.

This book was Used and looked new when it arrived, packed really nicely, and FAST delivery. I used it in a University class and it is a most intersting book, very up-to-date on research worldwide and easy to use. It has accompanying online products that are very helpful to prepare for Exams. I really enjoyed using this book for classes. Thank you for selling a great product in great condition !

One of the better textbooks I have had to use in a long time. The pages are set up beautifully, the information is relevant and the overall feel of the book is excellent. If only all textbooks were this good.....
The information is formatted in an unintimidatingly accessible introduction to the subject of anthropology. This book is amicable in a commitment to creating a knowledge basis on this subject, whether as an enrolled student, or as an autodidact (self-taught).
