Overview

Coming of Age in Samoa, Margaret Mead's psychological study of youth in a primitive society, is today recognized as a scientific classic. However, when first published, as Dr. Mead points out in her preface to this Morrow Quill edition, it was "the first piece of work by a serious professional anthropologist written for the educated layman in which all the paraphernalia of scholarship designed to convince one's professional colleagues and confuse the laity was deliberately laid aside."

This is the biggest rip off and Barnes & Noble should be strung up by their collective toes! This "book" is nothing more than a scan of a very marked up paperback with the bottom lines of each page missing. Not even worth the $.99 I paid for it. Too bad I couldn't give it half a star. DO NOT BUY THIS RIP OFF!

This looks like someone made a copy of the book on a photocopier. Really. Come on, B&N.

The format is very disappointing: Small copies of  yellowed, marked pages.  Nevertheless, I will read it if I can, what with the small print.
