If you love to read just for the sake of or the possibility of learning some neat out of the way and totally unexpected knowledge, I have just the book for you.

About two years ago I was given this book as a Christmas present. “Man on Earth: A Celebration of Mankind” by John Reader, Perennial Library, Harper & Row, Publishers.

A 255 page volume, the author profiles twelve, here-to-fore-to-me-unknown, societies that currently exist in a variety of places from the equator to the Arctic Circle. India, Africa, Bali, Switzerland and more. Entertaining, enlightening and hard to put down.
