Rated 4 out of 5 by from A page-turner! An engaging survey of many different topics and issues in anthropology, psychology, and sociology. I could not put this down... and I'm not even a high school student taking this course! The topics are covered very superficially, as the book goes more for breadth than depth. That's probably more a flaw of the curriculum than it is the authors' choice, though.
