Great Book

I have read this book and it really helped me understand evolution. It is a great book that is easy to read and understand.

Great Buy (Paperback)

This product arrived on time and without incident. ... got an 'A' in the class... if I remember correctly... but I digress... Great buy.

A very good introductory text

This text was used in my Intro to Biological Anthropology course and I found it to be very useful and interesting. The sections on evolution and genetics are very similar to the material covered in Campbell/Reece's widely used Biology text. I often found myself skimming through chapters that weren't even assigned for class because the material was so fascinating. Key terms are conveniently located in the margins of the text for easy flash card making and studying.

I was FASCINATED, and I am not even in Anthropology

This book, despite the other student's words, was fantastic! I read it night after night FOR FUN! It was so interesting, with good pictures too, that I just picked it up off the shelf even though it had nothing to do with my major. I even gave it to my family to read too, especially since they are fundamentalist Christians who have difficulty even conceiving of the idea of human change and development over time. I was not disappointed with this book in the fact, there were many nights I stayed up reading just as long as my eyes would stay open. Fascinting, comprehensive, thorough, and excellently written. BRAVO!

Boring but comprehensive

This is probably THE most boring physical textbook on the market, but it is also the most comprehensive. As an undergrad, I couldn't stay awake through more than a couple of paragraphs at a time. As an anthropologist, I can't think of a better textto assign to my students. For the serious student, there simply is no way to avoid this book. It set the standard.
