    1. This book opened up my world when I was nineteen and just starting university. I did a semester of Social Anthropology at my uni, and this neat little overview of how people do culture and see the world was mind-blowing. It felt so incredibly good, too, to realise that my view of cultures being fundamentally equal because they did the same thing for people was shared by others. There are problems with this book that I see now which I didn't pick up on after


    2. I love this book - for a small volume it is packed with ideas, theories and cultural examples, a brilliant introduction to social anthropology for the curious and a great revision tool for students already familiar with key themes.



    3. For such a small book, it compacted a lot of information within. I thought it did a good job of explaining anthropology terms and definitions.
