Though one should get Master's Credits for getting through it, this book is definitely worth the journey. A well-paced and insightful examination of how we live together - not only what we do and why we do it, but what the *implications* of those habits are for our common life. It helped me not only understand the culture around me but redirect some of my own attitudes into better channels.
