Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read Harris writes an amazingly witty book that explains almost anything one could possibly think of in regards to who we are, why we do the things we do, where we came from, and much more. It is easy to read and comprehend, and extremely hard to put down once you get into it. I think that everybody should have the opportunity to read this insightful piece by Marvin Harris. I give this book two thumbs up.
