Concise, well-balanced, and comprehensive, ESSENTIALS OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY, Seventh Edition introduces you to physical anthropology with the goal of helping you understand the big picture of human evolution. Supported by vibrant visuals that include abundant illustrations, photographs, and photo-enhanced maps, the text focuses on human evolution and biology to help you master basic biological principles of physical anthropology so you'll be able to better understand human origins and our place in the biological world. Offering balanced coverage of the topic areas you'll cover in class (heredity and evolution, primates, hominid evolution, and contemporary human evolution) this edition emphasizes the chronology of fossil finds instead of just describing the fossils and the sites where they were found. The authors also interpret each fossil within the framework of the story of human evolution. New features like "Why It Matters" further emphasize the fossils' evolutionary significance, and often even propose the relevance of chapter materials to our everyday lives. The seventh edition provides thorough coverage of cutting-edge advances in molecular biology and expanded coverage of population biology and human variation. It also includes powerful learning tools, including a robust text website. Altogether, ESSENTIALS OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY, Seventh Edition, integrates up-to-date coverage of the latest finds and relevant technologies in a format and writing style designed to help all students master the material.
Chances are, you're looking at this because you need it for a class. You can rest easy, as this book is informative without feeling like a slog to read. Plenty of interesting stuff to read about in here, but your classroom experience will depend more on your teacher than anything else. Still, if you see this title on your reading list, you're probably in good hands.

As far as the actual quality of the book goes, it's also good. The print quality is good, and the writing is concise and clear. That said, I would recommend renting this title if that's an option.
I got to chapter 11 in the book. I was reading on the Origins and Dispersal of Modern Humans for a paper due tomorrow, and I realized I'm missing pages 289-290. These pages seem to very relevant to the information needed to complete my essay.
The book was used but it came with alot of food stains. I mean I guess thats what the price you get for a used book. But I bought used books that were clean and crisp before. This happens to be a book that was thrown in the trash and someone ended up picking it up and decided to sell it. I mean the book was interesting its just the food stains were just horrible to look at.
I rented this book from Amazon because it is required reading. Unlike other textbooks I've read this one is written in a clear and engaging manner. Reading the assigned material is enjoyable and not a dreaded chore. The vocabulary words are defined both scientifically and in more common words. The illustrations and graphics accurately fit the material and are clear and understandable. The information is current and reflects the world that we actually live in.

This is the first time I am using Amazon's textbook rental program. I am very impressed so far. The book came in a timely fashion. It was in pristine condition with no marks or highlighter underlining. You can't be a the price anywhere. Believe me I've looked around plenty. I will use the service again.
The book was not the correct edition i had asked for, but that was my fault for not checking that this book was the 8th edition and not the 13th. I'm taking an anthropology class for summer school, and i was so incredibly disheartened when i saw that this book shipped out of PAKISTAN!! as in half way across the world! however, from the time the book shipped to the time it got to my house it was like 5-6 DAYS!! I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW FAST THE SHIPPING WAS!
i give them 10 million stars for the speed of the shipping alone!
I love this book. However, I didn't buy it, I rented it. Now I want to read it again, it's expired. Never rent a book you really love, just perchase it.
Works Great!
RCVD as expected, it is in shrink wrap BUT the photo posted does NOT show the holes. It would be helpful if the seller capitalized the words LOOSE LEAF especially since the photo reflects a bound book. It would also be helpful if the warning label about being NON-Returnable was posted in the advertisement. It certainly is on the outside of the shrink wrap. Thank you.
