    Most of us take for granted the features of our modern society, from air travel and telecommunications to literacy and obesity. Yet for nearly all of its six million years of existence, human society had none of these things. While the gulf that divides us from our primitive ancestors may seem unbridgeably wide, we can glimpse much of our former lifestyle in those largely traditional societies still or recently in existence.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This book holds your ear. It is not hard to follow from chapter to chapter. This is Cultural Anthropology at its contemporary best.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. But this book will make me look for his other works.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. This book holds your attention


    Any additional comments?

    Refreshing. A book with a I.Q.
