I found the choice of topics and delivery of these lectures enjoyable and stimulating.
The level might not be very advanced but i wouldn't say it was lower than other material for a more general audience. Maybe you could say the lecturer sounds very slightly pleased with himself but i really didn't find him patronising, and i would actually say he just sounds happy and enthusiastic about his job :)

Would you try another book written by The Great Courses or narrated by Professor Scott M Lacey, PhD?
No. The lecturer is irritating and dumbs down a fascinating subject matter.
What will your next listen be?
Historical great courses most of which are really outstanding.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Fascinating subject matter. What a pity

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Very disappointing. Great Courses usually offer challenging and informative high-level chunks of knowledge. This was geared to non-intellectuals on a childish level, instead of summarizing the latest knowledge of the field for non-experts.

Dr. Lacey is engaging, entertaining, intelligent, and at times hilarious; in this introduction to Anthropology. While he professes cultural relativism without speaking at any length regarding cultural incompatibility; he still drives home the need for objectivity in researching humans. This is highly recommended for the Anthropology student, especially as I find myself pursuing my masters in the very subject.
