    not worth the time nor the electricity used

    I owned a physical copy of this book in my international Maritime Culture class, and that book was lost in Hurricane Ike. this ebook replacement is by far the worst free book I downloaded. throughout the entire ebook the text omits letters, adds symbols, does not contain chapter marks, repeats the chapter title, and other serious problems that make this copy IMPOSSIBLE TO READ. I would suggest to anyone to wait until B&N returns with a proper ebook edition of this work.

    This book is NOT all about sex, guys

    " When my professor for Anthropological Theory passed out a list of books to choose from for an essay we had to write, I snatched up Margaret Mead's Coming of Age in Samoa the moment I saw it listed as an option; I'd been wanting to read it almost since I started becoming seriously interested in studying anthropology. Really, I don't think an introductory level class exists that does not bring up Mead and the controversy surrounding this book.

    So what's it about, and why is it so controversial? ..."
