I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
The content was interesting, but the text was quite dry, even for a textbook. It also omitted a lot of important content (how can you overlook the impact Johnny Cash had on music at the time?)Overall it was a good book, but the professor made the class fun, not the textbook.
