It’s a textbook. What else can I say? It serves its purpose. Do I love it? No. No I don’t. However it came in good condition as a used book.
This is well written book with detailed explanation. I would like to recommend to any body who wants to know about different cultures other than his/her own.
I found this text book to be interesting in the way it was written and very informative. The only problem I found was that some of the examples seem to be a little out-dated. I thought that there were not quite enough vocabulary words in each chapter and some of the highlighted vocabulary did not really pertain to the main concepts of the chapters. Overall, this book is good simply because it is not boring.
