Such axiomatic observations show linguistic anthropology's broad applicability. Take, for example, the sociologist Erving Goffman's ideas about the "presentation of self in everyday life," . social identity as a type of act or performance. Goffman," say the authors, "argued that much of social life-our face time-is spent managing how we want others to see us.

This is a book I used for school. I'm not sure how the actual book is set up, but when my professor pointed out page numbers, I was unable to look this up on the Kindle and the problems at the end of each chapter were all at the very end of the book. I wasn't aware of this as they did not come up when I read through it. I didn't agree with some of the opinions of the writers. I found many grammar and spelling mistakes. It looks like nobody edited this book before it became published. There are commas in weird spots and awkward sentence structures. It's like somebody started writing and never looked back at how the order of ideas should be placed within the chapters. This is not impressive when the book is about linguistics, syntax, sentence structure and understanding language.
This textbook will give students a thorough overview of linguistic anthropology, but is often "dry" and long-winded. While the basic information is interesting and enlightening, the details are what detracts from what otherwise is a good text. Some of the information covering obscure languages and/or cultures goes into such lengthy detail that it's worth skipping over and getting to the subject matter that really pertains to the subject you're studying. As with many textbooks, the instructor may have had no choice in which book to use. In any case, if you have to buy this book, do so...but be prepared to skim over the chapters first and find what is pertinent to your individual class/instructor and what you need to know. I can only generously give this textbook three stars.
booooring read, some of the content was interesting but mostly snooze...
It was advertised incorrectly. It wasn't the same book as shown in the picture. A way older version of the book shown was sent to me.
Book was in great condition, thank you!
This book is practically brand new. I wish it would have come faster, but its ok because school hasn't started.
