I looked at this book a few times over the years but never read it because I didn't think it would be that well researched, for some reason. Not sure where I got the impression. Anyway, an anthropologist recently recommended it to me and told me it was well done, so I picked it up. I'm about 1/3 of the way in and it is quite good. Anyone know if the rest in the series are any good? I've heard the movie is crap...thoughts on that?
