This book is so fascinating, especially for people who are interested in how sexual behavior can be shaped by one's culture. Keep in mind, though, that this is the older version of the book. The newer version is significantly different, with entirely new content and different language about key concepts.

This book helped me to develop my own project about rites of passage and everyone really enjoy this different and unique lives of the Sambia people.

If you're looking for a handbook on how to become a better parent, I would suggest either Parenting With Love And Logic (Updated and Expanded Edition) or Becoming the Parent You Want To Be: A Sourcebook of Strategies for the First Five Years.

This book has got to be the worst "how to" parenting manual I've ever read. Its parenting suggestions -- specifically those covering how to grow your son into a strong, healthy male -- are unconventional at best, downright illegal at worst.
