Didn't expect to receive a brand new copy. Maybe I'll get more than $2 when I try to sell it back at the bookstore.

Probably one of the best anthropology books I've ever had to buy.

I bought the ebook version, which was great because it saved me money and was really easy to use!! I could use the tools to look stuff up really easily.
